What do I do to get the GLUT to work?

I am trying to figure out how to get the GLUT to work. Maybe I do not have the right files downloaded since nothing seems to happen much when I try to use it.

How do I run the make file for it?

I do have dev_c++ to compile but not sure what to do with my GLUT …

Open a DOS window and type
make -f makefilename
there makefilename is the name of the makefile.

Here is a page for GLUT witn Mingw http://sites.netscape.net/ptrpck/glut.htm

Just create a console application and link with -lglut32 to build a GLUT program.

the tutorials at my site show how to set up glut, home.earthlink.net/~eberkain/
