    I don't know the answer to your question, though a search on google might help. I just posted to respond to your signature, it's bad coding style

    Sorry, I couldn't resist

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    DLL stands for dynamic link library. They are basicly functions that are pre compiled in a .dll file and can be called from another program. An advantage would be if you wanted to make a game programming library with a bunch of functions, then you could jsut send around the DLL. Also, the functions dont take up emmory until they are actually called in an exe, so they save memory. There is a good tutorial about making them over at www.flipcode.com. good luck!

    What is wrong with my signature????

    Why is that a bad programming practice???????

    Mr. Prelude
    #include <iostream.h>
    void main(void){
    char t[7] = "Thanks";

    cout<< t <<endl;
    }
