font lib for opengl

Recommended Posts

Merick Zero    151
I've been looking for a truetype font lib for drawing text in opengl. My problem is that the language I'm working with is FreeBasic and although it can link with libs compiled by other languages, all the font libraries I've been able to find are available only as C or C++ source code. Does anyone know of any opengl font libraries that have pore-compiled binaries available?

I've already got the Freetype dll, and it works with FreeBasic. What I want now is something like FTGL - http://ftgl.wiki.sourceforge.net/

But the only download link is for the C source code, and I don't know enough about C to be able to compile it into lib
