Egl and its uses

What is EGL And How Can I Use It
How can i use EGL with OpenGL-ES On Linux?
Is EGL a Layer Between Hardware And Operating System?
Can Anybody explain me what is EGL and what it does?

Ans:
EGL(http://www.khronos.org/egl/) is a window system-independent equivalent to the GLX and WGL APIs, which respectively enable OpenGL support in X and Microsoft Windows. It is an interface between Khronos rendering APIs such as OpenGL ES or OpenVG and the underlying native platform window system. It handles graphics context management, surface/buffer binding, and rendering synchronization and enables high-performance, accelerated, mixed-mode 2D and 3D rendering using other Khronos APIs.
