i am very new to openGL but i have a lot of experience with c++. Im using the Borland Free Compiler tool…
I have all reqd Li and Header and Dll files… However I get the error "Unresolved external " when I use any of the aux… and glut functions…
please let me know wht to do as i am trying to write my first openGL program
You must link glut32.lib and glaux.lib to your compiler.
there two methods to do this.
- link the libraries in the compiler setting
- write this #pragma(lib,“glaux.lib”);
you must also link opengl32.lib and glu32.lib

Yeaaa!! For a complete description, click in “Project” “Settings”.
After a new Screen appear, click in “Link”, and in the label “Object Library/Modules” add the text “opengl32.lib glu32.lib glaux.lib”
Your code must compile without errors now!
Fernando: he is using the Free compiler tools - they don’t have any IDE
Fernando, what you described sounds very much like MSVC. gordon9728 said he was using Borland’s compiler.
And bondi, did you foget a “comment” between “#pragma” and “(”?
#pragma comment(lib, “blah.lib”)
Here’s a tutorial page for you to check out:
It comes with a tutorial on how to use the OpenGL API with Borland Command Prompt tools. What I think is wrong is you need a later version of gl.h, which you can also download from here.
