include errors

I get 102 errors using the following include files.
#include <windows.h>
#include <math.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <GL\glew.h>
#include <GL\gl.h>
#include <GL\glut.h>
#include <GL\GLTools.h>

Hmm, if you are a C/C++ noob, try developing on gentoo, Linux, or Freebsd. There is better support for C/C++ development there and it comes out of the box.

The order of includes seems correct, I don’t know about GLTools.h, what that might be. Try dropping GLTools.h or glut.h out of the includes and see what happens.

By all means, if you include glut.h, don’t include gl.h also. I do it like this in my code:

#include “GL/glew.h”
#include “GL/glut.h”


include “GL/freeglut_ext.h”

#endif // FREEGLUT

and it compiles on both linux and windows.

well I tried what was posted.I still get the following error.

Obviously you need a definition of gltLoadTGA() somewhere. Link with appropriate library or .o files.

do you have any idea what lib I should include .

do you have any idea what lib I should include .

Aren’t you the one using the library? I’m going back to something Ugluk pointed towards: do you know how to build a C/C++ program? If not, then you need to learn that before learning OpenGL through C/C++.

I’d qualify that by saying that if you’re not familiar with those platforms then you’re likely going to have even more trouble. Use the tools you know best for the most pain-free experience.

Also that MSVC is genuinely one of the better dev tools avaialble (and has - hands down - the best debugger) so it’s a moot point which platform is “best” for supporting C/C++ development.

Agreed. The errors you’re getting are symptomatic of you not having things set up right, so learn how to do that properly first.
