Re: Problem with DLLs and processes

It seems it is much more complicated than just the simple STATIC option in GCC under Linux.
But there must be a way to link the executable with the dlls. Like in Linux.
There really isn't way. There is some ways to get around it, like
bundling that DLL inside application, and load it from there.
Doesn't Linux need also static libs if you're are compiling statically
linked? Or is Linux able to link dynamic libraries as static..? (Don't
remember been so long time I fuzzed around with Linux compilation).
Other funny caveats are unbounded, or external symbols inside dynamic
library. In linux they're solved at run time, in DLL you really have to
solve them at link time... =)
