Dynamic Link Library

From Higher Intellect Vintage Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A collection of subroutines which are linked with a program at the time it is loaded into memory rather than permanently placed in the executable. This has the advantage of allowing a single copy of the subroutine library to reside on disk or in memory even when it is used by many programs. It also permits all programs using the DLL to be updated without recompiling simply by installing a new version of the library.
