how can i create dlls for menuetos using Fasm?
is this the same as in windows (with the format "PE GUI 4.0 DLL" header) ?
Any tutorials or something?

MenuetOS has no any dynamic link libraries now. If you'll invent some good format for them - it would be great. Sorry, it's just like you can't write 'format Menuet 0.1' Smile

There is an excellent proposal made by spideros to use OBJ files as MenuetOS dlls.

Code:
format coff    
and should be enough Very Happy

Yeah, I use COFF format for DLLs in C library. I just call dlopen("some.dll",RTLD_NOW); and have DLL linked into app at runtime Very Happy
Converting C library to DLL is on my TODO list. I want to make dynamic loader separate app which is called by kernel and it loads app+needed libraries.
DLLs will probably contain some tiny meta info:
- dll name
- dll version
- required DLLs

Why have the dynamic loader as a separate app rather than in the kernel?

Because it's written in C. For example linux uses ld-linux.so for dynamic loading. Linux kernel itself only loads files and ELF interpreter to memory. If someone wants to port libmcoff (which is part of C library now) to MenuetOS kernel, he's welcome.
