    $\begingroup$ You don't need GLU for that. You can just use straight OpenGL. According to wikipedia: "The GLU specification was last updated in 1998, and it depends on features which were deprecated with the release of OpenGL 3.1 in 2009." $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 31, 2017 at 5:24

I personally like glad. The have an online generator as well http://glad.dav1d.de

It will generate exactly what you need for your platform.
