    Problem with glaux.h

    Hey guys,

    I've problem with glaux.h. Whenever i use this header for texture maping. It asks me for glaux.dll which i can't find anywhere. Somewhere, I even read that no one supports this library anymore. Can someone please help me with it? Without it i can't move on. I've just started Open GL. If anyone has the ".dll" file please post it or is there way to change all the glaux library to "glu.h". Please someone help, would really apperciate. Thank you!!

    Glaux is an outdated library that was used by various people and tutorials (like NeHe's) for loading images to be used as textures. I believe there should be a "Glaux replacement" thing on NeHe's site.

    If you are not using NeHe's tutorials, then I recommend: http://www.gpwiki.org/index.php/C:Using_SDL_with_OpenGL

    It shows how to use SDL as a window manager for OpenGL, and also how to use SDL to load bitmaps and use them as textures.

    Use OpenIL (DevIL) to load your images it is much easier.

    Perhaps but I would not recommend using glaux. From what I've heard it is loaded with bugs - some of them in the form of memory leaks.
