Thanks again for the info. I think i will leave the MSVC mod to Peter
Ekberg. In the meantime, i will continue looking at my wrappers and see
if i can get some measure of workability without any mods to libtool itself.

Question: Does libtool 1.5.22 for MinGW support shared libraries and
using DLOpened modules without dlpreopening?

If so in the example i gave before for a shared library was created
using ar cru and not g++ -shared and was linked into the app as a static

Also the DLOpened module was created correctly with the g++ -shared
option (Plus a static library as well), but was linked into the
application as a static library.

I guess i assumed that MinGW platform supported shared libraries using
DLL's. If not are there any plans for this in the future?

Completely understandable.

Thanks again,
