Where to get glew for the mingw64 platforms?

2 posts in this topic

I need to compile things with .a libraries under windows and with codeblocks and mingw64.
I got the source code from glew official website but I don't know how to go about making the library files. Any help for me please?
BTW, do I just put the glew header files into the GL subdirectory of mingw64.
The only things I am missing are the .a's and the dll's.
Thanks
Jack

It comes with a makefile. You need the gnu tools (http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/), and just open a command prompt in the same directory as the makefile and type

make glew.lib

See the instructions (http://glew.sourceforge.net/build.html)

 

For the headers, either put them in a default search directory, or add the GL folder to your include paths by the -I command with gcc, or by adding them to your project in whatever IDE you're using. For code blocks: Settings -> Compiler & Debugger Settings -> Search Directories.

For VS it's C++->General->Additional Include Directories.

I, too, use MinGW-w64 and I've successfully used the 32-bit GLEW development files (DLLs and .a libraries) provided here in a few test programs. They work fine if you're building 32-bit binaries; but if you want to go 64-bit, you'll have to compile GLEW by yourself like @hobogoblin said.
