I would like to know if anyone is using library DLL's for any applications.
Here are some of my observations with Windows NT 3.51, VC++2.0 and libwww 4.0C
combination. Would appreciate if anyone else using this can give/offer
comments on the behaviour....
Tools under test :- Our own collaboration tools (cross - platform).
Library as DLL :-
Followed the order of compilation given in the url
Used HTBinit.c as part of the project as the routine HTFileInit, is
not part of any DLL.
Library is crashing while writing the retrieved URL. (note, it
retrieved the remote url properly).
Someone else also mentioned this in the www-lib mailing list
some time back. This problem seems to be still existing.
Library as a static library :-
Under Debug mode of compilation (defining _DEBUG flag) everything seems
to be working.
However, when we compile for release, the application is apparently
exiting out from somewhere inside the library. As there is no debug
information available under release version. I could trace it down
to the library internals by using some form of dialog boxes.
