trouble installing glew

Post: #1
I downloaded the 1.3.6 glew source code. I'm still using 10.3.9. I typed:
> cd glew
> make
It gives me:
> : bad interpreter: No such file or directory
> : bad interpreter: No such file or directory
> Makefile:40: *** "Platform '' not supported". Stop.
Does glew1.3.6 work in Tiger only? Or have I done something else wrong?

When I downloaded the AGL 1.3.6 binary I wasn't sure quite what to do with the files. Am I supposed to place them in each project, or is there a way of linking all projects to a single glew directory? If so where do I put the files?

I'm guessing to link in Xcode (1.5) you go Project->Edit Active Target->Header Search Paths to point to the include directory and Project->Edit Active Target->Library Search Paths to point to the lib directory.

1.3.6 glew
10.3.9 osx
1.5 xcode
ibook 1.2

Cheers for reading. I'm a definite nubby, so if you need more information feel free to guide me on what info you need.

You need to run ./configure before you run make. Read the INSTALL file first, it should tell you everything you need to know.

Problem solved.

The readme says:

I had actually downloaded the .zip rather than the .tgz. When I typed make it produced the previous error. I re-read the readme and thought I'd go and download the tarball. Now the make does work. Smile

Why does the zip version compile and the tarball version not?
