    EmptyGlut

    i hacked together an empty template for using GLUT and OpenGL. It sets up a window and registers most of the commonly used GLUT callbacks to empty functions. It also creates a right-click menu with a submenu. This is just a skeleton to make setting up GLUT projects easier. Thought some of you might find this handy....

    edit: btw, the zip includes a Makefile for compilation on linux systems. In theory you should only have to uncomment the #include <windows.h> from the top to run this in windows... i havent actually tried though.

    pretty cool, I guess. It works on linux just fine i didn't have to comment out anything. I don't know why you did this though. Everyone knows how to set up glut(hopefully). You did teach me the submenu thing though. Thanx

    well, i did this so i dont have to set up GLUT everytime i want to make an app or toy with an idea. this way i just copy the file and fill in the functions. Its just a convenience thing really.

    Submenu's are handy, your welcome

    No other way at all. Why bother having to type everything in everytime when you can just get on the web and grab a template (I guess that would be a good name for this) that somebody else made?
