A dynamically loadable library is a dynamic-link library (DLL) on Win32, and an assembly (also a DLL) on the .NET platform. It is a collection of routines that can be called by applications and by other DLLs or shared objects. Like units, dynamically loadable libraries contain sharable code or resources. But this type of library is a separately compiled executable that is linked at runtime to the programs that use it.
Delphi programs can call DLLs and assemblies written in other languages, and applications written in other languages can call DLLs or assemblies written in Delphi.
