Dynamic Libraries with Delayed Function Loading

, 27 Oct 2011
This article explains how to create a dynamic library that loads exported functions the first time they are used, opposed to loading them when the library is loaded.
#include <windows.h>

BOOL APIENTRY DllMain( HMODULE hModule,
                       DWORD  ul_reason_for_call,
                       LPVOID lpReserved
					 )
{
	switch (ul_reason_for_call)
	{
	case DLL_PROCESS_ATTACH:
	case DLL_THREAD_ATTACH:
	case DLL_THREAD_DETACH:
	case DLL_PROCESS_DETACH:
		break;
	}
	return TRUE;
}
