Hello, Can you give me some examples of loading a dynamic library, or some documentation? Thank you for your time

Also, dynamic libraries can be linked at compile-time or loaded at run time. The process is slightly different.

If you link to the dll at compile-time then your executable won't start without it, but accessing the functions inside the dll is very easy.

If you load a dll at run time you can programmatically handle the instances where the required library doens't exist, however accessing the code in the dll is a little trickier.

(This info refers to Win32/C++)
