I wrote a program which used an external library. i was asked to include a .h file for compiling and link with the '.lib' while linking. I don't understand the reasons behind all this? Can someone explain?
1>What happens when i include the .h and link with the library?
2>What is the cause of the symbol referencing error?
3>and most important what difference does it make to the linking process when i use a .dll instead of a .a?
