    Probably a stoopid question....

    I'm not new to programming, but I am new to c++, basically Dev c++ compiler etc....

    I knew lots of C and kicked ass with djgpp but now I am very confused about a few things(mainly lib and .h files)

    OK so I am trying to get into Open gl.

    Anyone who knows about this please tell me if I am doing this right....

    I have a header file glut.h that I place inside dev c++\include\gl dir
    I have a lib file glut32.lib that I place dev c++\lib dir

    I then write a program
    blah blah
    #include <gl\glut.h>
    blah blah
    blah blah

    and lastley I goto the program options, paramters and type
    -lglut32 in the lib options part(I also tried manually selecting the lib)

    I then get an error saying there is a problem with the file included glut.h

    Anyone who can help I will appreciate.
    WOO!

    putting the header in quotes includes the file if it is in the directory of the source, its not so <gl\glut.h> is what I want, also I tried it just for kicks and copied glut.h to the dir, didn't work, knew it wouldn't.
    WOO!
