DLL (Dynamic Link Library) - Definition

DLL is an abbreviation for Dynamic Link Library. It is an operating system feature that allows executable routines (generally serving a specific function or set of functions) to be stored separately as files with .dll extensions. These routines are loaded only when needed by the program that calls them. Many DLL files are provided with the Windows operating system and are available for any Windows application. Therefore, the results and stability of those applications are much more predictable.
