Using OpenGL in MinGW with Freeglut

Currently in Monty we do not have MinGW set up on Windows, however it is simple to install on your home computer (tested Windows 10 on 12/01/2017 and again 01/05/2018)

If you do not have freeglut already installed:

Use the cmd window with the appropriate flags:
ie. g++ -o test OpenGL_Step1_Window.cpp -I"C:\MinGW\freeglut\include" -L"C:\MinGW\freeglut\lib" -lfreeglut -lopengl32

then type test.exe to run the program

Alternatively you could use a make file.

  If you would like a sample test file and make file click here. (tested on 01/05/2018 with fresh Windows 10 and MinGW install)
