Reading DLL Headers..

Reading DLL Headers..

Post by Doyle Johnso » Mon, 14 Jun 1999 04:00:00



 Does anyone know how to read a DLL header file (C++)?  I have a DLL I would
like to use (3rd party) but all I have to go on is the header file. I am not
advanced enough to tell how to call the functions, or just what the
functions are... is there a method or a standard that you can tell the
actual functions from the internal calls?

If you have the *.h file and the functions are exported and compatible with
VB then all you need to do is to translate the function prototypes in the h
file from C to VB declares.

To do this, you need to know a little C, but not much.  If the h file is not
too big you might try posting it.

BTW, I know this post is old, but I've been gone and it looks like no one
answered so...

1. Missing GL headers,libs,dlls in C++ .net

I'm attempting to compile an OpenGL app using "Visual C++ .net" and
find that there is no GL subdirectory under my include dir.

I have found several references on the web regarding the GL directory
and subsequent header files as they relate to Visual C++ 6. I'm lead
to believe that OpenGL headers, libs, dlls were included in VC++6.

The ironic thing is that when I looked at the "VC++ .net"
documentation on msdn.microsoft.com , they document OpenGL functions
and include an example of OpenGL code, which again, makes reference
to:

#include <GL\gl.h>
#include <GL\glu.h>

I have looked on www.opengl.org for the appropriate files, and all I
could find was the GLUT 3.7.6 sdk, that only contains one header
"glut.h", one lib "glut32.lib" and one dll "glut32.dll".

Some sites recommend a file from MS (Opengl95.exe), which I have
downloaded, but am hesitant to run, fearing what that will do no
documentation included.

What do I need to compile OpenGL code using "Visual C++ .net" on
"Windows XP" ?
