Heya guys!

Meanwhile I am sick of trying to find out how to kick the console window with Borland FreeBCC 5.5 using GLUT and I do not have VC++, so the pragma is not an option for me.
marcus256 told me how to kick the console window with lcc and Mingw, however, I didnt manage to compile a simple Redbook program so far. SO does anyone know how to set up GLUT with lcc or Mingw? Or does anyone know where to find a tutorial for those compilers?
Again thanx in advance!

Before you ditch BCC try replacing
void main()...

with

int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)

and compile with the -tW option
you may have tried this already, but I don't know why it wouldn't work

Maybe Im making just some stupid mistake, but replacing

void main()

by

int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)

causes a declaration syntax error in exactly the WinMain-line...
Besides, what parameters do I hand to glutInit()? Like this

glutInit(lpCmdline, nCmdShow) ?

Thank you for you reply! And even thanx for further ones...! http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Is it possible to get Glut to work with BC++5.5. I tried and have had no luck. I get alot of linker errors. I've also tried it with Bloodshed, because it has a nice IDE, and I can't get anything to work there either.

I used Lcc to compile my Opengl programs, I compile as a windows application. Now when creating a new project, I unselect create a skeletin, and have a base .C file that I use to start all projects.

Here is a good Lcc support site: http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Station/1177/index.html
