Good website or book for openGL and C++?

My colleges openGL course uses java... Not too thrilled about that, I prefer C++, or even classic C99, to java. So I want to do some openGL with C++ on my own time, but I'm not sure where would be a good place to go/good book to read to learn it.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

For online look-up, I use »www.opengl.org/

Also, I've used two books that have been helpful:

1. »www.amazon.com/gp/product/1592003699
I've got the first edition of that book; there's now a second edition I haven't look at. The first edition had a CD with sample programs; I'm not sure that's the case with the second edition given some of the user reviews.

and 2. »www.amazon.com/More-OpenGL-Game-···92008305

Thank you.

EDIT: also, are there any big differences you know of when coding openGL in say C vs C++ or java or *insert language here*?

C++ is the only language I've used with OpenGL, so I can't speak to the differences.

If you want to get into C++ learn from the person who invented it and cut out the middlemen, though C++ fails at that...

K&R is best it's C pure, and they do answer questions.

They're all a bunch of crazy ass AT&T Research types having fun.
