Post Windows DLL to Linux .so


HI,

I have a windows DLL written in Borland C++. I have to migrate that one to Linux platform. We have to convert the DLL into .so file as there is no concept of DLL in Linux. I heard some tools like win2lin, but WINE will not help me in this.

If you have any idea on that please reply for this message.

Thank you

This may not be the kind of answer you're looking for, but since you have the source code of your DLL, can you simply write a Linux makefile and try recompiling the code into a shared object (.so)?

Hmmm... We do a lot of porting between different platforms, but we have source code in C/C++ so it's just a matter of using standard ANSI C/C++ and appropriate makefiles. I'm not sure if there's an easy way to port code in the binary format, though. The fact that both Windows and (typical) Linux use the Intel 32-bit CPU may help, but I could be wrong.

Sorry I can't be of much help...
