    Open GL programming

    I'm looking to get started on learning how to use open gl, but every time I try to compile one of the many sample programs that I have, I keep getting multiple declaration syntax errors within gl.h itself. I have now tried 4 different versions of gl.h, and I still cannot get past the errors. The errors are occuing within the WINGDIAPI lines, and I was wondering if anyone know anything about this problem, or what to do about it

    What compiler are you using?
    Aside from that, you certainly shouldn't be switching your header files with random ones you find on the web. Most headers are are taylor made to the compiler they're included with.

    I'm using Borland Visual C++ 5.0, and I did keep a copy of the original header just to be safe
