Compiling with DJGPP, include files

I have installed GLUT for Win32 version 3.7.6 from the CD accompanying Edward Angel’s book. Included therein are the files: glut.def, glut.h, glut32.dll, & glut32.lib.

I want to use DJGPP’s C compiler to compile one of Angel’s examples for Windows 98. I realize I need include files gl.h and glu.h (and possibly glext.h?). I’ve found these include files as part of Mesa-5.0.1.

Question # 1: are Mesa’s include files are the right ones to use? If not, from where should I get the correect ones?

I’ve reached the point where GNU’s linker (ld.exe) says it cannot find C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\OpenGL32.dll – however, I know that this file is there.

Question 2: am I compiling/linking correctly (see below)?

With thanks,

Dana J.

Not used to using gcc on windows, but aren’t you supposed to link to the .lib that you should also have, and the .dll is implied in doing this.

The .lib files and .h are obviously the development only files and typically reside in some dev folder (only the dll goes in windows system), this may be based on whatever SDK you installed it from, I doubt you have an MSDEV dir with gcc, but you should know where you have these.

Get the headers and libs from here
Drop the dlls into your C:\WIN???\system folder and the libs in your DJGPP lib folder and your headers into DJGPP include folder.

Hope that helps

Is the book OpenGl A Primer by Angel? Mine didn’t come with a CD

No, the book is not Angel’s Primer.
Instead, it is his textbook
