Does statically link means always a Lib and dynamically linking means a dll?


A "lib" doesn't always hold the same meaning. When you are using a dll, a "lib" becomes dummy. It's just used to hold information about the dll when you compile. You put all your functionality into the dll. It holds the content for example an exported class or a group of functions. The lib holds all information. The linker looks for these information.

You can link to a dll both statically and dynamically. When you statically link it. (just like you link an MFC runtime) This gets added to your executable. You will not have a dependency but the executable size becomes bigger. When you link dynamically, the dll is kept independent and your exe uses it everytime and hence the advantage. Any number of exes can share the same dll.

Should Lib has to be used with dll in an application?

As I said, when you compile a code that uses a DLL, you'd require the libs. You don't even need your DLL when you compile. The LIB has all the information about the dll. The dll is required only at the run time.

Also, you can by pass the usage of libs if you are dynamically loading the dll using
LoadLibrary() & GetProcAddress calls. But you should know the type information in prior. For example the function signature.

Also occasionally you can build libs with brains- a static library. That's old an way though.

So I got your point. You are confused between libs,static library, dll & static linking. lol Smile | :)
