[texhax] Incorporating TeX into Custom-made Programs

Dear TUG,

I've searched for the last four hours for an answer to my question, and this 
is my last resort.  Sorry if I sound ignorant, but here goes:

I'm devoting the rest of my life to making a very complicated educational 
program that runs through abstract mathematical proofs and displays visual 
aids.  Probably naively, I'm planning to write it in C and use OpenGL.  
Anyway, I need a way for the program to display mathematical symbols along 
with visualizations of the mathematical structures.  So, I need a way to 
display math symbols graphically on the screen.  I thought that somebody 
would have already written some library to achieve this, but I was wrong or 
just not thorough enough.  How do you suggest that I incorporate TeX symbols 
into a graphical C program?

Thanks so much for your help!
