    Dev-C++ (found here) supports OpenGL and although I don't program OpenGL, I can vouch for this editor. I really like it. BTW, there is an example OpenGL program in it.
    Hope this helps,

    >>using dev-c++....i always has linker problems<<

    It's always a good idea to post the specific error messages (provided there aren't too many; if they're similar one or two should suffice).

    Still, it's probably worth asking if you've added:
    Code:
    -lopengl32
    -lglu32
    to your Project menu --> project options --> parameters tab, 'linker' field?

    Hmm... In my copy of Dev-C++ the OpenGL example compiles fine.

    That's because the opengl template sets the linker options for you (check it yourself within the ide or open either the project or template file with a text editor) although in that case it only links with -lopengl32 since that's all it needs.

    That's right. I was wondering whether Dev-C++ did that for you, but was too lazy to check .
