Default MASM and TASM


thank you, this is what which was causing the confusion
masm32 package have a file inc2l.exe which makes import library just from
include files. So what is needed to make a import library, just the name of
functions with parameters that it take.
i heard that import library contains information about addresses of
functions that loader is to load at runtime, what about that ,where it is.
This is causing me confusion.

i thought one can also make a import library from ml.exe and link.exe
..Assemble the program containing just prototypes of functions and link it
with /Dll option and .def file containing name of functions.
This is how i think works when Masm32 installs itself ,but im not sure.
i see successive execution of ml.exe,link.exe, inc2l.exe during installation
of masm32. Please explain.

.... and the name of the DLL that contains the actual entry point.


Not true. An import library only contains the name of the DLL that
contains the entry point, and the name of the entry point inside that DLL
(which can be different, although rarely is).


Yes, link.exe can make an export library from a .DEF file or from an .OBJ
that contains exports.
