Compiling OpenGL Outside the Lab

You are allowed to develop code on your own machine, instead of the lab machines. However, you must ensure that your code compiles and runs on the lab machines for grading (with the exception of the final project). You must do this before the project is due, don't put it off until the last minute!

Note that it is up to you to configure your home machine so that it works. To make your lives a bit easier, we're providing the information based on the experience of past students. If you have additions or corrections, let us know.

OpenGL should be default-installed on everything (Linux/Windows/Macs). You will need to install GLUT yourself. Download it from here:
