OpenGL isn''t a language. OpenGL is a standard from which libraries are implemented. You access these implementations from another language (most common languages have bindings).

Thank you,
Please can you reccomend a decent c++ compiler, that is free. And where can I get it.
The compiker I have currently runs through msdos and does not create a .exe file. Thanks again.

If your program runs in a console window (not the same as MS-DOS), you most likely created a console project. Create a windowed project (don''t remember the exact name) if you don''t want to have a console window automatically opened for your application.

It certainly does generate exe-files. Compile a project and look in the project''s directory. As long as the compilation succeeded there should be an exe there.

When I open the file ''ch''. It comes up with a small window, with the c:\ symbol.
I select the directory where my file is. ''cd my documents++'' and type the file i want to run ''hm.txt'' it runs the file in the same window and then goes back to the c:\my documents etc...
am I running the wrong file. If so where is the right file.
