Talk:Call a function in a shared library

From Rosetta Code


Since this is a heavily OS-specific task, I suggest it should be split into subtasks for each of the operating systems listed under OS. BTW, why POSIX is not under OS? It should be a subcategory "OS interfaces" or alike there, I guess. --Dmitry-kazakov 17:56, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

I've picked this task from the Request a task page and honestly have not thought too deeply about availability for all systems or languages (e.g. ... Perl on "POSIX" systems maybe can access the same dl* functions as C, but it can also try to load a module instead... which is not a shared library in a broad sense, but to Perl-POV could be more reasonable than the concept of (system specific) shared library)... --ShinTakezou 18:17, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
I think tasks should stay general, and we shouldn't contribute to the fragmentation of the os'es and languages. --tinku99
