It will depend on the compiler and operating system. Tell us what you are using so that we can be more help.

Not really. You can use C. OpenGL has bindings for several languages.

Turbo C++ is a 16 bit compiler, so it can't work with OpenGL. He will just have to do it the hard way with Borland's graphics.h for that compiler.

What do you mean by graphics?

If you mean a graphical user interface, I suggest you take a look at Qt.

If you mean 3D graphics rendering, I suggest you take a look at OpenGL, NeHe tutorials are a great place to start (although out-dated a bit).

And if you actually mean doing both, then look at QGLWidget (part of Qt, allows you to embed an OpenGL view-port inside a GUI).
