    Good compiler for OpenGL (besides MS Visuial c++)

    What is a good compiler for Win32 OpenGL programming? I dont' have Visuial C++, and I don't want to have to buy it. I currently use Dev-C++, but I don't seem to have a right library files nessisary. It gives an undefined reference to almost every OpenGL function. Also, exactly what support does Dev-C++ have with OpenGL? Thanks alot!

    You have to tell the compiler to link the opengl libraries into the project.
    Go to Project->Project Options
    Then add
    -lopengl32

    in the box that asks what other library files you want to load.
    It's the box next to the Load Library button.
    Try that.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?
