Most Gem objects are wrappers to OpenGL commands.

While pd-list is indeed full of helpful fellows, I would suggest looking 
into documents on OpenGL for facts and design concepts unclear through 
reading only ones installed with Gem.

i.e., as I see from searching, your question may be new to this list but 
appears to be an FAQ in the OpenGL field.

Although I do not recommend it, flipping through the first 4 chapters of 
the "OpenGL programming guide" 
http://www.opengl.org/documentation/red_book/ even if you are not 
specifically a C programmer.

It helped me catch up with sooo many WHYs of Gem which had me puzzled 
for years.
