I was wondering which was the best way to set up DLLs and Apps for import and export. I''ll be using them for a game and I want to know how to go about doing that. I don''t really get the def (is it def?) files. I also don''t know what to do on the App side. I''m really confused and I need help. Please? ~Ajarn

If you''re just getting started with programming on Windows, you should set aside DLL programming until you get the hang of writing exe''s. A good beginners book is "Programming Windows" by Charles Petzold.

Your compiler system should deal with importing functions for you - at least it should deal with the low level for you. You might have to tell it which .lib files to use in the linking process.

You might also want to check out the "For Beginners" link above.
