I understand what you are saying. Hence I tried compiling using an nvidia
glut dll rather than cygwin\bin\glut32.dll. The results I got were the
same i.e the same error. nvidia is a graphics card manufacturer and they
provide windows dlls for their windows demos (that run fine). The
glut32.dll they provide is non-cygwin as are the other opengl dlls I am
using, so as far as I can make out, all my dlls are non-cygwin.
euclid 5:06pm [3d_diameter]> cygcheck main
where .\glut32.dll is the nvidia dll I was referring to.
the error message (on this executable) is reproduced below:
euclid 5:09pm [3d_diameter]> ./main ifile1
