    .h and .lib unloader

    Hello, I am somewhat new to C++, I have read books on it, and I have been messing aorund with it for quiet a while. I am slowly catching on. But I do have on question. I know this is possible, but I am wondering if anyone here could possibly help me with this idea. I was wondering on how a program could be made to extract the header files and library files from a .dll or something of the sort. Anyone have any ideas?

    The problem with this question is that it doesn't make any sense.

    Your question leads me to believe you don't understand the basics of DLLs and how to use them. I suggest you learn how to use them in the standard manner and then try rephrasing your question.

    I can see where you are coming from. But as you might be able to tell, this is somewhat hard to explain. Basically, having a program that is capable of extracting the header files from a .dll. (I know there are already things such as DLL To Lib). Or would there possibly be a way to somehow view the .dll and being able to see some of the source or something. I have tried disassembling before, but considering I don't know assembly (I plan on learning it soon) that doesn't work too well.

    I think you are misinterpreting two things:

    1) This article (.lib)
    2) depends.exe (.h)

    >> I can see where you are coming from

    The feeling is not reciprocol bruthuh.
