View Full Version : glext.h... HELP!!!

07-08-2001, 07:08 PM
everytime I try to compile my source code, my Borland 3.1 gives me about 31 errors saying that there were multiple declarations in glext.h...I DIDNT WRITE THE FILE!! i thought it was supposed to work.. Ive downloaded the same file from about 30 locations, and I cant find one that wont give me errors...what should I do?

AAAAAAAh now here's the point ! You are using Borland C++ Builder. I've used a borland compiler for much time, and I've met some compatibility problems, too.
glext.h has probably been written for MSVC++. My only idea for you is the following : at the top of glext.h, there is :
#ifndef __glext_h_
#define __glext_h_
This should prevent you from getting the errors you get. If is does not, maybe __glext_h_ is some reserved name(because of the two _ on the left) so try replacing it with FOO123 :

#ifndef FOO123
#define FOO123

I hope this will help (but there are few chances !)

The other solution:

Change the compiler.

If you don't want it to be for LiNUX (the best chance), you can get DJGPP, being better than BC31. I supose you can obtain the VC++ compiler too.
