    Question Knowing the Functions a DLL is offering

    Hi all,
    Can anyone tell me a way in which I can know all the functions that a DLL has or offers.
    For example, I buy a new sound card or a cam or anything that comes with windows drivers. Now, I want to make use of the driver to write my own software. So, how do i know the functions and their prototypes for using in my software??


    Any help is deeply appriciated...

    Warm Regards,
    Sriharsha.
    Help everyone you can

    Look to see if you have the DumpBin.exe program. It ships with Visual Studio, (I think). You can use that with the /HEADERS option to view the DLL's export table.

    Warning, it doesn't work with all .dll's, but is harmless.
