.h, .lib, etc. files for OpenGL 1.5. I have the free Borland compiler, but it has version 1.1.

Thanks

Because microsoft controls the library files for windows you can not get a library past 1.1, but luckly openGL has a work around for this.

Since the newest openGL video drivers are updated by the video card vender and not microsoft. They have the newer openGL function supported via the video drivers. You can access these functions in windows and linux through what is called extensions.

The other poster has a link for the extension webpage, also a web search will turn on tutors on how to use them.
