hi,
im a new bie at asm and would appreciate your help.
I need help in creating DLLs thru ASM.
Can somebody give me just a skeleton source-code
for DLL in which i just start coding direct in
some function, also how to compile it etc.
waiting for reply

That's all in the Masm32 package. http://www.movsd.com

There's one in the MASM package like qweerdy said and there's a FAQ entry for it.

Hmm
Thanks

Theres a confusion between static lib file and the dynamic ones
For a dynamic lib file (thats import lob if i am right) .dll file shud also exist, am i rite?
But for a static lib file, theres no need for the dll, all the necessary code will be included
into my exe from the lib file, is that it?
If yes. how i use static lib file in code?
Icezlons tutes how using dynamic lib and dlls .

Probably, you want to learn about how modules are collected by linkage editor. As long as you are not going to create a library, and your main purpose is calling routines in libraries, there is no difference in your source code. What modules are linked to your application and how they are linked are linkage editor's job. (Although there is a way to get slight speed-up when using a DLL, that does not make a big difference.)

hmm
it seems either my question is not clear to you
or your answer is not understandable by me..

Look for example,
I have a DLL and a dynamic .lib file..
I can use it as Icezlon has told to use it in
his tuturial no. 17 part 1 and part 2.

BUT
for example i have a static .lib file with me.
I want to call its functions in the exe.
I will have to include it in my asm code thru
includelib static.lib etc etc
but then will it work?
I mean the dependency on external file (DLL as in
prev case) will be finished?
How do i use a static .lib file?

Like I said, whether the library is static or dynamic, your source code is the same (unless you are trying to save small amount of time with DLLs). Try assembling a test file. You will see right away what I mean.
