# Gah GLUT 2.0

## Recommended Posts

Puzzler183    540
OK, I''m using Dev-C++ for all of this, so here''s the deal. I got the xmission GLUT, and in the zip there was glut.h which I moved to the includes/gl/ folder. I was about to move the glut32.lib to the lib/ directory, when I noticed that all the files in there had the .a extension. And as luck may have it, there was a libglut32.a and a libglut.a (all the files has lib at the beginning). I didn''t know what to do with DEF file (I am assume the latter may be the problem) so I left it be. I also moved the dll to C:\windows\system32\ and C:\windows\system. My code is:
#include <iostream.h>
#include <gl/glut.h>

int main()
{
cout << GLUT_LEFT_BUTTON << "\n";
cout << GLUT_MIDDLE_BUTTON << "\n";
cout << GLUT_RIGHT_BUTTON << "\n";
cout << GLUT_UP << "\n";
cout << GLUT_DOWN << "\n";
return 0;
}

And I changed my linker options to reflect how it said I should do it with the other OpenGL libraries: -libopengl32 -llibglut32 I then tried to compile, and got: [Linker error] undefined reference to __glutInitWithExit'' [Linker error] undefined reference to __glutCreateWindowWithExit'' [Linker error] undefined reference to __glutCreateMenuWithExit'' I really don''t know what''s going on there although I''m assuming it has something to do with that DEF file or my libglut32.a file missing functions... So do anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for that, but even after changing it to:

-lopengl32 -lglut32

I still get the same three errors...:/ If you have any other ideas, let me know...

Find the glut library and add it.

That will be the day when people stop answering without reading the whole question.

He's not using MSVC.

Puzzler - have you tried rebuilding the lib from source ?

C++Note - you shouldn't use <iostream.h> but <iostream>, along with std::cout and std::endl.

Dev-C++ didn''t like that when I did it, and this is just a little temp test so meh. I''ll try rebuilding the lib I guess, although I''m thinking I''ll just find another place to download it and try again.

Fair enough. Good luck.

I''m starting to think it''s Dev-C++. I just noticed that including NO libs gives me the same errors. I think it''s time for a reinstall...

I read every last word. The steps I gave are the steps to link a library in Dev-CPP.

I''m not building a project; I''m building a single file... Anyway, I''m in the process of reinstalled Dev-C++ and heck, I''ll get a newer better version so it''s all good.

OK, here we go again...

I reinstalled it but no luck! This is really pissing me off. I even tried creating a project and including both libglut32.a and glut32.lib but still nothing. The source and errors have canged slightly:

#include <iostream>#include <gl/glut.h>int main(){     std::cout << GLUT_LEFT_BUTTON << "\n";     std::cout << GLUT_MIDDLE_BUTTON << "\n";     std::cout << GLUT_RIGHT_BUTTON << "\n";     std::cout << GLUT_UP << "\n";     std::cout << GLUT_DOWN << "\n";     return 0;} `

And the new errors are the same as the old ones only with @8, @8, and @12 appended respectively. Any more ideas Fruny?

Apparently the GCC package even in your newest version of DC++ is outdated. I recommend doing like what you mention and trying to find a GCC-compatible set of GLUT libs for Win32, or rebuilding them. The former will likely be easier on you, but my casual searching didn''t turn anything up.

Raloth: Had you read and understood every word, you would have realized that the library was already correctly linked and that the problem was one of using a different version of the lib from that of the headers.

BTW: the @N notation represents the number of total bytes in the parameters the function receives.

Later,
ZE.

Thanks although that sounded kinda bleak to me... Oh well, I guess I''ll have to try it:/
