    I've tried it without success. I don't have a GLX driver, but I have GL, GLU, and GLUT. Even with a modified Makefile.PL, nmake (MS VC++ 6) dies with a boatload of errors in OpenGL.xs. The module appears to be constructed with *NIX platforms in mind.
      well i knew that, but looking at the code, it appeared it just linked to C functions. i'm thinking the problem may be the fact the my libraries are C++, but they are pretty close, so i figure a minimum changes are needed to fix the module for win32. I'll continue to fiddle with it for a while. I really want to do opengl programming, but I'm not as skilled with C++ as I am with perl. well, maybe someone will develop a module, or will find a fix.
