    Making .libs!

    I have a class that uses a DLL. I was wondering if I could compile the class into a .lib. I would just use it like it is but it requires me shutting of some of the options in MSVC++8.

    Does anyone know how I could turn my .cpp into a .lib?

    I'm learning C++, so this may not be the "most proper" implementation, but I think it should work:

    Code:
    extern "C" __declspec(dllexport)
    /*your class here */
    
    extern "C" __declspec(dllexport)
    /* your methods here */
    That is, of course, for dynamic linked libraries, you should be able to use lib.exe to convert the necessary code to a static library

    Additionally, MSDN has some stuff on it too.

    Good luck!

    Update:: That MSDN link did the trick!
