Hmmm, a free c++ compiler for mac that will be able to use OpenGL? That could be a toughy, i''d like to see the answers to this post too. But I don''t think that CodeWarrior for the Mac is that expensive (not compared to MSVC++ at least!). You never really hear about free Mac compilers.....Sorry that I couldn''t help!

You can get Apple's MPW tools from:

http://devworld.apple.com/tools/mpw-tools/

They include a functional C++ compiler. The editor is pretty crap though...its not a full IDE like MSVC or CodeWarrior.

You can get OpenGL SDK from Apple as well:

(Drastic) Option #2: You could install LinuxPPC and use gcc.

I prefer CodeWarrior, but it''s way too expensive. If you can scrounge up a little cash you could get Discover Programming for Macintosh (which might compile for PPC, you need to check on it though). It is a version of CodeWarrior with a few features taken out and it can''t be used for commercial development. That''s what I started on, but have moved onto the acedemic version of CodeWarrior Pro 5 which is about half of the price for the regular version.
If anybody does know of other free compilers though, I would like to hear about them too.

ok, you can use mpw to get opengl to work. however you should read http://public.lists.apple.com/digests/mac-opengl/1999/99-Oct/v01.n144 which describes what you need to do + has an example makefile. personally i use codewarrior, but mpw will work fine if your''re willing to deal with it (i wasnt).

I didn''t bother using it either (I tried, it''s confusing as hell when comming from CodeWarrior). I was pretty peeved when I installed CodeWarrior Pro 5 and it installed a copy of MPW too. What''s up with that?
