Im not sure if this is in the correct form so sorry if its not. I am trying to program in OpenGL using Eclipse with the C++ plugin. I have it working to perform regular console programs in C++ but when trying opengl with the basecode from nehe or some of the other lessons i get tons of errors. It includes the needed gl headers. I think im including the proper libraries i add them by going into properties of the project and added them in one of the tabs that says libraries. The errors are saying pretty much every gl functions is unknown like glrotate and others. Im using mingw32 for the make and compile. I don''t know why im getting all these errors, i have used lcc for windows to compile and it works fine, but when i don''t want to use that editor, and i tried pointing eclipse to use lcc''s make but it doesn''t work says errors with the makefile. Im used to VC6 so this is all new to me, while i have used eclipse for java before, i am away and only have access to eclipse or something that is free for the next couple months and would like to get some work done. Thanks -THACO

Ok, i fixed most of my problem, i just had to add the -mwindows -lopengl32 and -lglu32. Of course some of the tutorials use glaux and when i says -lglaux it compiles fine but then when it wants to run can''t find the glaux.dll, is there a glaux.dll? if so why wasn''t it a problem running the regualr exe that comes in the nehe tutorials or when i compile it using lcc?
