noob question...libs

Hi everybody…
So, i did the download the GLUT 3.7, but i don’t understand how do the libs, for a gcc IDE(CodeBlocks, more specific), or I can’t do this for IDEs?

But I can do this for the MSVC, right? but how I can do that?

Thanks for attenction and have a nice day.

… use a search engine ?

For GCC in Windows OS, you need libglut.a or libglut32.a instead of glut32.lib.

These files should come with your MinGW packages. For example, my MinGW directory is C:\MinGW, then the files are in C:\MinGW\lib folder.

And then, you simply configure Code::Bocks settings by referencing the above folder for GCC linker.

Thanks for the attenction for all…
I hope this can help me a lot.

THanks and have a nice day.
