I am the author of the MAPM arbitrary precision math library. This is a library which allows the user to make any calculation to any desired precision level. The library is written in straight ANSI C.
On many occasions, I get an email on how to use the library from a VB.NET / Visual Basic application. I have very little basic experience, and I don't know what to tell them. I would really like to tell them how to proceed to call MAPM from a basic application.
Let's assume they can compile the library with a C compiler and create a DLL.
So my question is there a conventional / standard way to call a C based DLL from a VB application. If there is some thread or help available somewhere, I would like to send the people to that location.
