3.1 What Are DLLs?

The Dynamic Link Library (DLL) contains a group of compiled functions or programs which link dynamically, not statically, with an application.

LANSA Open provides its functions in a DLL. This DLL will be installed with the LANSA Open installation program.

Using DLLs

In order to use the installed DLL functions in your application, you must perform two steps:

1.  Make the DLL functions known to the application.

2.  Call the desired function.
