Please, can you explain your problem more. Do you mean by Borland5, Delphi 5 or C++Builder5?

Borland doesn't use the same format for .lib files as MS vc++ (for instance). The .lib file provided with glut when you download it from the net is the vc++ compatible version.

If you want to use glut with borland's compiler you have to create a borland compatible .lib.

How ?

Make a search for the implib.exe program in the bin directory of your borland compiler. Then use this program like this:
implib <path>glut32.lib <path>glut32.dll

This will create a new .lib that will work for borland c++
