How make DLL using C/C++ in Visual Studio 2005?

Creation of DLL task in visual studio 2005 is so simple. Follow the following
steps to make DLL in visual studio 2005.

Make new project via using menu or press “Ctrl+Shift+N”.

Select Win32 from Project types and select “Win32 Console Application” project

Give project name which you want, select location of project where you want to
save. Press OK.

Win32 Application Wizard will welcome you, press Next button.

You have to select DLL in application type and Press Finish.

Your project will create. Build your project and get Library File(.lib file) and Dynamic Link Library (.dll file).

Now, important thing related to exporting function. There is two ways of exporting function. One, using Module-Definition File (.def file) which is old way to export DLL (I like this way), second way, export function using Microsoft Specific extension of the C language via using __declspec(dllexport) keyword.

For learning these ways visit following sites.

(using def file)

(using keyword)

How make “N” bit Integer??

template <int Size>
void NInt<Size>::SetValue(int value)
this->Int = value;

template <int Size>

cout<<“Value : “<<this->Int<<endl;

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
NInt<2> obj;

C Bit Fields
In addition to declarators for members of a structure or union, a structure declarator can also be a specified number of bits, called a “bit field.” Its length is set off from the declarator for the field name by a colon. A bit field is interpreted as an integral type.
type-specifier declarator opt : constant-expression

The constant-expression specifies the width of the field in bits. The type-specifier for the declarator must be unsigned int, signed int, or int, and the constant-expression must be a nonnegative integer value. If the value is zero, the declaration has no declarator. Arrays of bit fields, pointers to bit fields, and functions returning bit fields are not allowed. The optional declarator names the bit field. Bit fields can only be declared as part of a structure. The address-of operator (&) cannot be applied to bit-field components.
Unnamed bit fields cannot be referenced, and their contents at run time are unpredictable. They can be used as “dummy” fields, for alignment purposes. An unnamed bit field whose width is specified as 0 guarantees that storage for the member following it in the struct-declaration-list begins on an int boundary.
Bit fields must also be long enough to contain the bit pattern. For example, these two statements are not legal:
short a:17; /* Illegal! */
int long y:33; /* Illegal! */
