Magic DLL

A Magic DLL is a Windows DLL (Dynamic-Link Library), that can be called from Magic through the Call UDP operation or the UDF function.

A Magic DLL exports a MAGIC_BIND function, that is used by the 4GL Magic to retrieve the function definition : parameters types and number of parameters.

Since Magic 8, most normal Windows DLL can be used from Magic, throught the calldll function and the new behavior of Call UDP and UDF ; so you don't need to use Magic DLL, althought they are easier to use.
