25.4.5 Runtime Loading of DLLs

DLLs built using the recipe described in this chapter can be loaded at runtime in at least three different ways:

  • Using the Cygwin emulation of the POSIX dlopen/dlclose/dlsym API. Note however that the emulation is broken up until at least version b20.1, and dlopen(NULL) doesn't work at all.

  • Using the Windows LoadLibrary/FreeLibrary/GetProcAddress API.

  • Using libltdl, which is covered in more detail in Using GNU libltdl.
