I''m fairly new to openGL and even newer to programming on for windows. I''ve done a little openGL programing in linux and I wanted to try and learn more openGL but I wanted to do it in windows.
I''ve been trying to get openGL & glut to work with mingw but
I keep getting glut32.lib No such file or directory.
I''m using mingw version 2.95.2 for msvcrt.dll from Mumit Khan.
I''m using the the files from www.opengl.org for win32 and glut version 3.7
Can anyone help me?
I don''t think MinGW uses the MSVC-style .lib files. It comes with OpenGL (just use -lGL and -lGLU as you do with gcc), and I don''t know about GLUT (I''m sure there''s some GLUT libraries floating around in the format it understands if it doesn''t come with them). If I''m mistaken correct me .
Well, it looks like it uses a ported version of GCC''s static library format. You may be able to find a MinGW32 GLUT ".a" around somewhere. If you don''t, you can always build yourself one from the source. I don''t think there''s a utility to convert Microsoft''s .lib format to .a though...
I got it working, thanks for your help. I did get it to work with the .lib files? It appears that mingw just didn't like the version of glut I was using. I tryed version 3.6 and my code compiled without a hitch. I appreciate your input.
compiled using gcc cube.c -lopenGL32 -lglu32 -lglut32 -o cube
