Using a DLL with Linux

0 votes
41 views
Hi

I run PLECS on Linux. I have C-Code that i would like to convert into a DLL.

I find the DLL block in the library and the header file in /include/plecs/DllHeader.h

However the documentation talks only about DLL generation for windows. Could someone provide a few lines of howto go about it for Linux with gcc (No visual studio, please)

I could generate a .so file (Please let me know any special compiler flags that need to be passed to gcc). Do i just rename it as a 'dll'

Hello,

Please see the DLL block description where it mentions that Linux DLLs are supported (.so files, usually using the ‘-shared’ option for gcc). We do not provide support on creating a DLL file for Linux environments, but there are many resources available for this on the internet, see e.g. https://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/shared-libraries-linux-gcc.html.

Best regards,

Kris
