Dl objects under unix: advantageous or not ?

i looked through python library reference and found that we can use "dl" to open a shared library.

so my question is whether to use "dl" directly or make my own module, so that i can call c functions from the new module.

some info is there in reference manual but where i can get more information regarding why not to use "dl".

Is it fair to assume that you mean DLL? If so I can tell you that this is a great way to call C library functions. I use the ctypes module often with great success. (I am, of course, experienced in Windows. I guess they are not called "DLL" in the *nix world)

Actually dl is not dll. "dl" is a module which comes under unix specific services you can see the library reference for more details
