What Is a DLL?

In the Win32 world, a DLL is just a collection of functions. Such a collection of functions is not necessarily simple, however. A DLL can be as simple as a single function, or it can be as complex as being a self-contained program. All Win32 Perl extensions are DLLs, so it is important to understand how they work. They are discussed in detail later in this chapter in the section “The DllMain() Function.”
