    Downloading header files

    I'm not really sure if this is a stupid question or not but, is there a place where you can download C++ header files? I need glaux.h which did not come with dev-cpp (maybe in one of the updates), and i was just wondering if there was a site that you can just download the header files from. Maybe it has to be incorporated into the compiler or something, i don't know, but any help would be appreciated. I'm sure i could get it from VS but it's a 2 GB install which i don't feel like doing!

    Well, im not sure where you can get glaux (I would google for you but im too lazy).

    But I would suggest forgetting it. I am assuming you want it for texture loading. And trust me, there are better ways.

    nehe.gamedev.net has some replacement code for the glaux.

    Yeah, I also strongly suggest against using glaux. Every function glaux performs has been done better by a different library.

    You also need the libs compatible with your OS and compiler, not just the header files.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
