Should I use a DLL?

Post by computerquip » Wed Mar 04, 2009 5:26 pm

I've never really looked into it but when I do, I never have actually found an actual answer to my question.

POINT: Is it common practice to use a DLL rather than link to the libraries statically? Normally, I would link to the program statically because it's more convenient for testing and passing around but when I finish a product, I'm not sure what to do.

DLL is almost always unneccesary unless you are creating an application consisting of several executable modules that share a library such as wxWidgets. In any other circumstances, distributing a DLL is probably a waste of time.
