How to use OpenGL contect in SDL2?

0

My questions are

  1. How to use OpenGL context in SDL2?
  2. What library/libraries is/are needed to use OpenGL in SDL2?

I am on Windows 10, vs2019.

I am trying use OpenGL context in SDL2. I followed the tutorial in the below link. In the tutorial, their link to gl3.h is dead, 404.

https://www.khronos.org/opengl/wiki/Tutorial1:_Creating_a_Cross_Platform_OpenGL_3.2_Context_in_SDL_(C_/_SDL)

I tried to get a copy from their GitHub, and I don't think that the correct one.

https://github.com/KhronosGroup/OpenGL-Registry

I also tried glew, (glad, Core 3.0, no extension). glew doesn't work.

glad kind of work, but I get an error

Exception thrown at 0x0000000000000000 in GLTest.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation executing location 0x0000000000000000.

The error above is referring to the line

    glClear ( GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT ); <<< this line

full code

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

/* Ensure we are using opengl's core profile only */

            printf(" + line: %i\n", line);
        SDL_ClearError();
