How can I combine an Object Oriented Design and DLLs, with and without delivering the source code to any engine-end-user???

Define your objected oriented design by declaring corresponding class interfaces exported from the DLL. Internally, the DLL uses classes that actually implement the exported interfaces but which are not exported and hence are not visible from outside the DLL.

Yes and that's the problem I want to create a dll with a lot of overloaded functions, operators and also templates, which are accessible from outside the dll.
Is there any application creating those dlls.
For example it could create a dll from a class and implement every overloaded function.
It could look like this:
INT example_1i3f(INT, FLOAT, FLOAT, FLOAT);
INT example_2i3f(INT, INT, FLOAT, FLOAT, FLOAT);

Now I/it can build a static library and delete those strange postfixes.
It would look like this:
class Example{...
example(INT A, FLOAT B, FLOAT C, FLOAT D){return example_1i3f(A,B,C,D);}
example(INT A, INT B, FLOAT C, FLOAT D, FLOAT E){return example_2i3f(A,B,C,D,E);}
...
}
Usually I did this by hand but it gets very complicated in very complex cases.

So is there any tool providing those functionalities???
