View Full Version : ChoosePixelFormat and other errors

01-18-2001, 09:21 AM
I am using the Cygwin GCC C++ compiler with Windows NT. I have been able to compile some tutorial files which uses GLUT, but I came across a tutorial file, which upon compilation gives errors like "undefined reference to ..." - the list includes "ChoosePixelFormat", "SetPixelFormat" and "SwapBuffers".

From my limited experience these function calls form the core of OpenGL programming in the Windows Environment (I could be wrong). What do I need to do to get the program to compile?

BTW: The code includes windows.h, gl.h, glu.h and glaux.h

According to my MSVC docs, you need to include wingdi.h, and link to gdi32.lib.
