    DLL DevCPP won't take a min.....

    Hello all,

    i'm looking for someone who has experience of making DLLs with DevCpp and getting them to work in a C++ application. I've been looking around on the net for information regarding this but i don't seem to be getting anywhere. I learn well by example and was wondering if someone in the know would be able to do the following:

    1 Create a DLL project in DevCpp and put a function in it(no matter how simple the function is).
    2 Create another application which uses this DLL and function.
    3 Post the code of the dll header and .cpp file and the .cpp file of the application.

    I'm sure this would take seconds if you know what you're doing but if you're like you'll be here/there forever.

    Thanks ......

    VC++ has a wizard that does #1. Doesn't Dev-C++ have one?

    Yes DevC++ does have a wizard(project) for step 1 but i don't know how to declare the functions and implement the fiunctions properly. And then i don't know how to get the comlied dll working in a project.

    Does DevCpp support .def files? They can be used in Visual Studio to export functions from a DLL. All you need is to link against the .lib file of your DLL and a header with those functions and any exe can use them. That second part is kinda standard stuff, what you do all the time when you use API.
