Subject RE: How can I debug libapr-1.dll, libaprutil-1.dll?
Date Sun, 25 Nov 2007 08:04:20 GMT

Hello William,

Thank you so much!

I also see the files: libaprutil-1 (Exports LIbrary File) and libaprutil-1 (Object File Library).

Some people told me I can create lib file by the command:

lib /machine:i386 /def:libaprutil-1.def.What are differences between them? or are they same
by using different ways?

Your help will be greatly appreciated!
