I hadn't heard of that before so I wrote a test case. Wrote a release
dll/lib and was able to compile both debug and release versions of a
'third party' application that would use the dll/lib/h files. Now,
this is similar in structure to how I have my own protobufs library
set up. Release dll/lib, that is. Though the binaries I compiled were
But, suppose you have the dll, a lib and the required header files.
You have all the things you need. The functions, their location, how
they are called. Surely the DLL would worry about itself. It's a
separate moster altogether to the source code you're trying to
compile, no? The DLL doesn't have to interface to anything. No
headers, no nothing. It only worries about itself, right? Just needs
to know what in the dll to execute, and that's managed by the lib
file, correct? All you should need are the entry/exit points I'd've
though. Though my understanding of DLLs is by no means infallible.
