I have been using glut for a long time now in my VS
C++, win32 environment. I only learned of freeglut
today, and it seems great! However, there seems to be
no readily available .dll, .lib, and .h file available, as glut
has. This is probably the reason I've never heard of it
I can't afford to download code and HOPE that it will
compile, and tweak environment variables, and config
files to get it to compile, only to have it not link properly
with my application.
Please consider that if you want freeglut to replace glut
in both utility and popularity, you'll have to make it
easily available to us windows users. Even if we
shouldn't be developing in windows, that doesn't change
the fact that we are.
If such .dll, .lib, and .h files ARE available, please
upgrade the link to them so they are easier to find from
the main freeglut.com page.
