Does anyone know of any references (preferably online) on how to use dyamic libraries under Linux? I know that Linux shared libraries are not exactly equivalent to Windows libraries, but there should be a way of using a library like a dynamic .dll file. Cheers, => Arfa <=

You just need to link your program to the shared library, and it will dynamically load it for you.

If you have a .so of your own, which you won''t know about until later (eg a plugin) well, I can''t help you.

Yeah, the plugin option was the way I was heading. Cheers anyway, man.

If you want to do plug-ins, check out the man page for dlopen. This will load a dynamic library at run time instead of having to link it at compile time...
