Mac - DLL issues

TO:  IDL users the world over
From:  Ed Wright, JPL

Question concerning DLL access/builds on a PPC Mac.

I have a large C library (normal static) with functions I wish
to access in IDL.  I wrote a set of wrappers to access the
static lib in the IDL manner.  I then compile the wrapper
as a DLL and include the static lib in the link list.
IDL refuses to find the symbol names via a call_external.

This link a dll to a static lib strategy works on unix boxes.

Do I need to recompile the static library to a DLL for IDL access
on a Mac?

As always,
Ed Wright
