I want to implement Zooming and Panning functionality into my application using openGL ES (as I am working in Pocket PC 2003 in VS 2005).I am using:

gluPerspectivef(FoVy, width/height, zNear, zFar);
gluLookAtf(eyex, eyey, eyez, centerx, centery, centerz, upx, upy,upz);

....to implement Zooming and panning but it is giving Linking error ( unresolved externals).
Can anyone suggest me any other wayout that will work in openGL ES.

well there are different ways, how you can have a *zooming* effect


for perspective view:

  just move the camera into the scene to zoom in, and to zoom out, move it out of the scene ..

for ortho-view:

its not that simple, you have to modify the first 4 params of glOrtho
