Dynamic Link Libraries

A Dynamic Link Library (DLL) is a collection of software routines programmed in a language such as C or Pascal, which has been packaged especially for use from another program. For example, a C programmer might write a routine that accesses a laser disc player. By compiling this as a DLL, it might be usable by an author of a Windows Help hyperbook, without them having to know anything about the programming.
