View Full Version : GLUT32.LIB problem

06-05-2005, 01:10 PM
I am new to OpenGL and am trying to compile the first basic program in the OpenGL Superbible using Borland's C++ Builder 6. I am using the GLUT32.LIB from the glut-3.7 folder included in the Superbible. Any suggestions?

[Linker Error] 'C:\PROGRAM FILES\BORLAND\CBUILDER6\LIB\GLUT32.LIB' contains invalid OMF record, type 0x21 (possibly COFF)

code follows:
#include <vcl.h>
//#pragma hdrstop

#include <windows.h>
#include <gl/gl.h>
#include <gl/glu.h>
#include <gl/glut.h>

void RenderScene(void)
// Clear the window with current clearing color

// Flush drawing commands

// Setup Rendering State
void SetupRC(void)
glClearColor(0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f);

void main(void)
glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_SINGLE | GLUT_RGB);

The problem with .lib files is that they come in different flavors. The one you got there is probably for Microsofts Visual Studio C++.

Borland uses a differend object format that is not compatible with Microsofts.

Since this is a problem that pops up on a regular basis Borland included a tools that extracts a Borland .lib for any given .dll.

You have to look for it though, cant recall its name right now (I dont like the Borland compiler all that much).
