Talking about C++ we cannot avoid STL and openGL

For STL you can look at this thread

Newbie in opengl under linux platform face the difficulty in compiling the c++ code and linking the libraries like GLUT, GL, GLU. The best way to avoid the problem is to create a make file which can compile any GCC c++ source file and produce the output file.

The code for make file is
   CC = gcc
   INCLUDE = -I. -I/usr/include
   FILENAME = zbuffer
   LDLIBS =   -lglut -lXext -lX11 -lXmu -lXi -lGL -lGLU -lm -lSDL -lSDL_mixer
   LDFLAGS =   -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/lib -L/lib
