cygxxx.dll or xxx.dll?
Wed Oct 13 10:03:00 GMT 2010
I tried this tutorial: http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/dll.html
The DLL source is "mydll.c". The DLL is linked with "gcc -o myprog
myprog.c -L./ -lmydll".
For the DLL I tried different names:
"mydll.dll" and "cygmydll.dll" are found by "-lmydll". "xmydll.dll"
isn't found by "-lmydll" but by "-lxmydll".
It seems the "cyg" prefix is build into the linker upstream.
What is the official policy to name DLL? Cygports with "cyg" prefix,
other ones without?
Caution crosser: Runnig Gentoo/Prefix on Cygwin/Vista.
All stupid questions are related to that context.
