    1. Have you tried google, I did and got several links heres one Link!

    2. They are in lib files you tell the linker what the name of the lib is and wolla.(If this is not what you are talking about please fell free to re-word the question)

    3. Once agian google helps. Another Link

    Moral of the story:
    Search the web before asking questions.

    A dll is basically an executable file that contains computer's instructions. A single dll can be used by multiple applications at once, otherwise it's a static library.

    don't understand question #2

    there's a sticky in the game programming forum that has links to various OpenGL tutorials.
