    configurating dev-c++ for openGL

    Code:
    #include <glut.h>
    
    void mydisplay()
    {
        glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT) ;
        glBegin(GL_POLYGON) ;
            glVertex2f(-0.5, -0.5) ;
            glVertex2f(-0.5, 0.5) ;
            glVertex2f(0.5, 0.5) ;
            glVertex2f(0.5, -0.5) ;
        glEnd() ;
        glFlush() ;
    }
    
    int main(int argc, char** argv)
    {
        glutCreateWindow("simple") ;
        glutDisplayFunc(mydisplay) ;
        glutMainLoop() ;
    }
    i have the above code, but i have error compiling
    i have the below error
    glut.h: No such file or directory.

    anyone can teach me how to do the linker and where to copy the openGL lib to?

    thanks in advance


    also, i wanna try using cygwin to do the compiling also
    so same thing, where do i do the linker and where to copy the openGL lib to?

    you have to include the include path for opengl. for DevC++, they install that in the DevC++ directory under gcc/Include/gl

    a compiler option. look through your menus. alternatively change your include line to:

    #include <gl\glut.h>

    because opengl was installed in a subdirectory of your gcc main include directory

    you should probably just go ahead and do a full install of the latest DevC++ It installs it I can assure you

    I dont know, I just now Download and Install latest DevC++. Still doesent have <GL/glut.h> so I went to DevC++ and looks into all directory to find glut.h but no luck. Can you rather tell me how to put inside the DevC++ all necessery files of Glut.h.
    I download
    GLUT 3.7.6 bin from http://www.xmission.com/~nate/glut/glut-3.7.6-bin.zip
    and GLUT 3.7.6 src. from http://www.xmission.com/~nate/glut/glut-3.7.6-src.zip
    But dont know what with that. Where to put all that files.
    Curently working on Windows!
    I know it is silly question but I dont know how to do it!

    I went on DevC++ chect for upgrades and there it is find glut.h, But I then I went to download it, and all freeze on half way. I will try agin, maybe it will work.
    It install glut.h and openglut.h, and now from above code i got losts of ->linker error <- is that above code wrong or I have to do something more with glut.h

    Could it be that you haven't linked it to the OpenGL libraries?

    Or does GLUT do this for you? I've never really used GLUT.

    looks like im late to the scene, anyway you forgot to init glut....

    Code:
    glutInit(argc, argv);
