F.9.6 Creating the Definition File

The definition file is the last file needed to build the DLL. It lists the exported symbols. As an example, the definition file for a DLL containing only package API (where all the entities are exported with a C calling convention) is:


EXPORTS count factorial finalize_api initialize_api

If the C calling convention is missing from package API, then the definition file contains the mangled Ada names of the above entities, which in this case are:


EXPORTS api__count api__factorial api__finalize_api api__initialize_api
