Re: problem with including .dll into current cpp program

Actually, there are two methods for linking dll file.
1. static.
when linking dll file statically, windows system will be charge of
loading and unloading dll file. and the location of dll file should be
windows system folder or the one same as the *.exe file. as your dll file is
on remote machine, this method can't help you.

2. dynamic.
With this method, you will handle loading and unloading dll. it's more
flexiable than statically linking.

Suppose the following function in your dll file:
void dllFoo( char *pStr );

Please refer to the following for how to use this function:
/* file: use_dll.cpp */
#include <stdio.h>
#include <windows.h>

typedef void (*Typ_dllFoo)( char *pStr );

int main()
::LoadLibrary("\\\\atoc\\admin\\luebeck\\header\\d ebug\\bccld.dll");
if ( hDll == 0 )
printf("load dll fail\n");

Typ_dllFoo pFoo = (Typ_dllFoo)::GetProcAddress( hDll, "dllFoo");
if ( pFoo == 0 )
::FreeLibrary( hDll );
printf("get function address failed\n");

pFoo( "hello! that's ok!!" );
pFoo = 0;

::FreeLibrary( hDll );
return 0;

That's all !

Please don't pollute comp.lang.c++ with off-topic answers.

Please cite the sections from the C++ language standard that define
these two methods for linking "dll" file. Or that specify linking or
"dll" at all.

If you can't, the appropriate response is to direct the OP to a proper
compiler-specific support group.
