View Full Version : XLIB Functions with OpenGL

05-01-2001, 06:19 AM

I'm usign some calls to WINAPI in my OpenGL programs for windows (C ANSI), like:

#include <GL/gl.h>
#include <GL/glut.h>
#include <windows.h>
#include <mmsystem.h>
#include <winuser.h>
#include <shellapi.h>
Status = MessageBox(NULL, "Question...", "Box Title", MB_YESNO);
ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "help/index.html", "", "", SW_MAXIMIZED);

And now I'm porting this porgrams to Linux.

How can I do this in XWindows to run in KDE and Gnome?? Is there a site obout the XLIB API?? (like msdn for WINAPI)

All the info you'll ever need about Xlib is in the man pages.

And if that isn't enough:

But if I were you, I'd look at using GTK or the KDE libs or SDL instead of using the Xlibs directly.
