Well... The format of both files is different, but they both work the same, or basicly the same. As for using them, in Windows look up the function GetProcAddress... or something like that (I never actually did DLL under windows). As for Linux, look up the functions: dlopen, dlsym, dlclose... That should do just fine for you. I don't know of any good webpages that explain this... sorry!
