OpenGL::GLFW 0.03 perl bindings released to CPAN


Announcing the official release of OpenGL::GLFW 0.03 perl bindings to GLFW 3.2.1. Please see for the more information. I would appreciate anyone trying the module letting me know (this forum topic is fine).


OpenGL::GLFW 0.03

OpenGL::GLFW provides perl bindings to the GLFW3 library.

This first implementation requires you to have the GLFW
library (version 3.2.1) and header files installed and
in your compiler search paths. It does use pkg-config so
if you have the GLFW libraries built with the glfw3.pc
file in your PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment or the system
defaults location then this module should build.

Alien::GLFW implementation is on the TODO list.


Assuming that you have GLFW installed on your system and
have the includes and library in the standard, system locations,
you can manually install this module by typing the following:

perl Makefile.PL
make test # will run a sample program as final test
make install

or for a much simpler, automated install try

cpanm OpenGL::GLFW


This module provides a more modern, lighter-weight window and
system interaction interface compared to OpenGL::GLUT. You
can use OpenGL or OpenGL::Modern for perl bindings to OpenGL.
