Default DLL's

I am confused about DLL's. I have found some definitions, but none of them help me understand what types of information they contain and what the could be used for. Just hoping someone here could help me and give me an example or two, or if someone could give me the name of a book that explains this well.

Thanks in advance.

A DLL is a Dynamic Linked Library. Or a library of functions that are linked to at run time.

When you compile business functions, especially those you might want to use in more than one place, you compile them into a library that then is consumed by the shell of the program, be it ASP or Winforms...
