Hey everyone, i just found this site, and it looks pretty interesting. I reciently started working with openGL and GLUT, i'm reading the Red Book. I just have one question, GLUT seems to be for the C language, is there any api like GLUT thats built upon a C++ language? Thanks, Gavin

yup sdl is pretty much the adopted standard for simplicity when it comes to gl. setup your screen in a single function - can't say no to that. Although some people do have problems setting it up with certain compilers (mainly ms ones).
I use mingw & gcc, & aslong as you link to libraries "mingw32,sdlmain,sdl" in that order you shouldn't have any probs.
But yeah, grab it & be happy

I tried to read the openGL tutorials on NEHE but they are using some glaux.h file also, and i cant seem to find this anywhere on the net.


I just downloaded SDL i just gotta figure out how to make it work with Dev C++
