Think about what users of your engine want it to do for them. They want it to be simple. For example, users want one function call to initialize the library or to instantiate an object from the sound engine class. They want one function call to load a sound file and one function call for each time TEAM LinG - Live, Informative, Non-cost and Genuine! 5 6 Chapter 1 ■ 3D Engines and Game Programming a sound is to be played. Finally, they want one function to shut the engine down or delete the engine object.

We focus on the two big APIs, DirectGraphics and OpenGL, and ignore the more comprehensive 3D-engine approaches, such as Java3D or OpenInventor. These two big APIs are less integrated parts of graphics programming, because they use graphics-adapter drivers that interface between your software application and the hardware graphics adapter. However, such APIs are not 3D engines even if they are dealing heavily with 3D graphics as such. DirectGraphics and OpenGL do not only project 3D data to 2D space and put color onto the output pixel data.

They developed more or less historically because I used them for whatever reason from my beginning in programming computer graphics as a prefix for my own function names. info.
