Recently featured on OpenGL.org, Bob Free of Graphcomp posted a new OpenGL Perl (POGL) 0.55 release candidate at http://graphcomp.com/opengl

It includes source/binaries via PPMs, tarball, ZIP and SVN. Note: Install GLUT first.

It adds support for 53 new openGL extensions, including FrameBuffer Object and Vertex/Fragment Program extensions.

It's been tested on Windows (NT/XP/Vista) and Linux (Fedora 6, Ubuntu/Dapper).

Free also posted C vs Perl OpenGL benchmarks: http://graphcomp.com/opengl/bench.html

    I was happy to see this, but I still can't get it to compile. I did a "perl Makefile.pl" and got the errors:
    Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lGLU Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lglut Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lopengl Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lGLX etc etc
    So I edited the Makefile.PL to include -L/usr/X11R6/lib , and I still get the errors.

    This is all very dissappointing for me, since SDL compiles in it's OpenGL support without a glitch.

    Anyone have a clue-stick that they can hit me with?

      I don't know, but I'm having the same problem
      Try the latest SVN rev. If that doesn't work, email me at grafman-at-graphcomp.com
