    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
    Code:
       CC = gcc
       
       GCCFLAGS = -O
       
       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
       
       program:
       	$(CC) $(GCCFLAGS) $(INCLUDE) $(FILENAME).cpp $(LDFLAGS) $(LDLIBS) -o $(FILENAME)
