Though it might seem like I know what I am talking about, this is my first day getting into OpenGL, so please don't assume I know what you are talking about if you use advanced terminology.
The following information is ordered in order of importance, but before I get into any details the central issue is: GL_POINT_SIZE_MIN is not declared in "gl.h" where I imagine it should be declared.
and I get the next errors:
'GL_POINT_SIZE_MIN' : undeclared identifier
'glPointParameterf': identifier not found
I also checked in "gl/gl.h" and GL_POINT_SIZE_MIN isn't declared there, but it looks like it should be.
I noticed also that gl.h has this line
/* Version */
#define GL_VERSION_1_1 1
So is it possible that my header is out of date and that is my problem? If this is true, then please illustrate how I'd go about updating. I have googled "opengl update" and variants with no luck.
I didn't really know how to confirm my version so I downloaded this thing called OpenGL Extensions Viewer which says my version is 2.1. The full report is listed below:

According the database, you are running the latest display drivers for your video card.
Compiled vertex array support
This feature improves OpenGL performance by using video memory to cache transformed vertices.
This feature accelerates complex rendering such as lightmaps or environment mapping.
Secondary color support
This feature provides an alternate method of coloring specular highlights on polygons.
S3TC compression support
This feature improves texture mapping performance in some applications by using lossy compression.
Vertex array range support
This feature improves performance in some applications by using AGP for dynamic vertex transformation.
Texture edge clamp support
This feature improves texturing quality by adding clamping control to edge texel filtering.
Vertex program support
This feature enables a wide variety of effects via flexible vertex programming (equivalent to DX8 Vertex Shader.)
Fragment program support
This feature enables a wide variety of effects via per pixel programming (equivalent to DX9 Pixel Shader.)
