I'm 15 and I really want to get started with graphics, and I don't know how to get OpenGL, please someone help! I hear that OpenGL ships with Windows'98 which is what I have, but how the hell do I get to it? Can someone help me find it please?

hi

you can get the files here
http://www.opengl.org/Downloads/Downloads.html

download the relevant one for your os

(assuming windows)

the files to use are
(assuming c/c++ experiance and development)

gl.h glu.h

and

you need to link to

opengl32.lib glu32.lib

and put in your system folder (if not already there)

opengl32.dll glu32.dll

I would also encourage you to visit
http://nehe.gamedev.net/opengl.asp

very good tutorials


good luck
