Hi, i am very new to openGL; i’ve jsut finished learing the C++ and the Obejct-Oriented Programming:
My question is: what files do i need to start coding in OpenGL?? Of course i have a compiler (DevC++: is that ok? I run Xp)
I read the FAQ but the link to the aswer of my question doesn’t work.
Thanks in advance for your interest.
gl.h, glu.h, glut.h and their matching libraries. That’s all.
glut is not an obligation but very good to start.
glu is not an obligation but very very good help.
…That is, you must add in the Settings of your Microsoft C++ Project, in the Link section:
You may also add in the future:
for using Extensions
I don’t use GLUT, but I think that the lib is called: glut32.lib
GLUT is really useful to get started, especially if you plan to program all in C++.
Good luck and post any questions you have!
Once you get to it, it flows really easily!
