which says "dynamic library", rather than "DLL"; the term "dynamic" is used 
with most UN*X implementations of shared libraries (and the file suffix used 
for shared libraries on Darwin-based systems such as macOS and iOS is ".dylib").

The initialism "DLL" is a sign that the system being discussed is almost 
certainly Windows.  The word "dynamic", however, isn't - it may even be a sign 
that it's a UN*X, as they probably would have said "DLL" were it Windows.
