[gameprogrammer] Re: screen to world coord conversion in OpenGL

If this helps, another way to do it is think of it like this.

When you click on a point with the mouse, it covers up 1 pixel.  What
is under the mouse could be near, or it could be far.

So, what you do is cast a ray that follows that path from where you
clicked the mouse into the scene, and find the closest intersection of
the ray to an object that you care about.
