Outline:

  1. Download and Install MinGW
  2. Download and Unzip the GLUT for Win32 Source Code
  3. Download the Makefile
  4. Make Two Modifications to the GLUT for Win32 Source Code
  5. Make the GLUT for Win32
  6. Install the GLUT for Win32
  7. Test the GLUT for Win32

Procedure:

1) Download and Install MinGW
~~~~TODO~~~~

2) Download and Unzip the GLUT for Win32 Source Code
~~~~TODO~~~~

3) Download the Makefile
~~~~TODO~~~~
Right click the following link and save the file:
http://www.joshuaburkholder.com/glut/makefile
Save the makefile to the root of the unzipped GLUT for Win32 folder (i.e. glut-3.7.6/ where the README is located).

4) Make Two Modifications to the GLUT for Win32 Source Code

    Make the following modifications: 
    1. Add the following lines to include/GL/glut.h starting at line 12:

#ifdef __MINGW32__
#define _STDCALL_SUPPORTED
#endif

    2. Comment out line 21 in lib/glut/win32_winproc.c so that it reads:

//#include <crtdbg.h>

5) Make the GLUT for Win32
~~~~TODO~~~~
In MSys (the MinGW Shell ... where /mingw is defined), cd to the root of the GLUT for Win32 folder (i.e. glut-3.7.6/ where the makefile was saved).

mingw32-make

6) Install the GLUT for Win32
~~~~TODO~~~~

mingw32-make install

7) Test the GLUT for Win32
~~~~TODO~~~~

mingw32-make test
