I dont know how to link a library with my project
« on: September 14, 2005, 04:56:45 pm »
I am new to using code::blocks and I need to link glut32.lib to my project.  I cant find any docs on it or anything in the FAQ.
Can someone please help me?

Ok, to link a library to your project, you add it to the Project's Build options.

In the Menu "Project", choose "Build Options", and then select the default target. Click on the "Linker" tab, and there's the Link Libraries. Click on "Add", and there ya go :)

Get a recent version from Nate Robins' site, the zip contains not only the static lib, but also the dll and the def file, just link against the dll, works like a charm. Static linking never worked for me.
And of course, you must link against opengl32, too.
