Learning about wrappers, DLL etc.

P: n/a
Hi All,

First, perhaps some would be kind enough to help me, once I state my
approximate background
I have written a moderately complex c++ program consisting of 11 files,
all Bloodshed Dev.

I have also read and understood c++ Primer, and feel I know even the
most advanced topics in that book reasonably well. I also know matlab
fairly well.

I now work in finance.

Many of the issues our company deals with involve wrappers, and calling
c++ functions from matlab and vice versa.

However, the c++ books I have are all on pure c++ and don't prepare me
to deal with these problems.

Do you have any good reading recommendations? I know how to code in
pure c++ fairly well, but I don't know enough about the issues being
discussed to even understand what's going on.

Concepts that have come up include DLL, bcp, wrappers, calling matlab
functions in c++, calling c++ functions in matlab, Links between SQL
and matlab, OLE DB etc, creating OLE DB classes for fastload, calling
OLE DB function to copy data etc., .bcp extensions.

Some of these terms I don't even really understand (for example dll,
bcp, OLE DB, fastload...)

Of course, I could simply google each term but I'm really hoping
there's a better way of learning this material to get an overall
understanding of these issues.

Any suggestions regarding websites or books?

Thank you very much,

Paul Epstein

When I said "links between SQL and matlab", that was a typo. I meant
"links between SQL and c++".

Basically the topic probably comes under c++ wrappers, DLL, OLE DB,
terms I barely understand.

I hope there's enough c++ content in my posting to prevent it being OT.
