loading .h, .dll, and .lib
Hello everyone. n00b alert!
This might sound like an insult to your intelligence, but I'm just clueless on how to do it.
Here are the "files" that I have:
Basically I have a header file, dll file and a lib file. The only info I have is whatever is in the header file. Seems like just constants and function declarations.
That's pretty much all the info I know. How would I know what's inside the dll file? From my understanding of DLL's, they are just a compilation of functions. As far as the LIB file, I have no idea what's in it.
My question is, what do I do with these files? I can include the header file, but then I'm stuck after that point. I don't know what else I'm suppose to do.
I have a .cpp file in which it includes somefile.h. Don't really know how to proceed after that.
I have DevCpp that I just downloaded and currently use. I do have access to VC++ 6.0 that my friend gave me for free, but I'm not sure if I want to install it. I would like to get this working (or make it do something) using DevCpp if possible.
Thank you in advance.
