In addition to the functions you want to export (plus any supporting private routines), a DLL can contain an optional function called LIBMAIN (or its synonyms DLLMAIN and PBLIBMAIN). Windows calls LIBMAIN when a DLL is loaded into and unloaded from memory by an application. The use of LIBMAIN in your code is optional.
