understanding modules

Recommended Posts

under Win32 there are processes and threads, readily spelled out in the SDK which i am reading. i have begun looking at modules, particularly the function GetModuleInfo. i have tried google, but i havent seen anything which clearly spells out the relationship between a process and module. im thinking the module is all the object code in a more resource oriented aspect, while the process is the current execution side.

A module is either an EXE or DLL file. A process will probably contain multiple modules: the EXE file and all the DLL files it loads.
