Implementing DllCall style function

Recommended Posts

MISIIM

I am trying to implement a DllCall style function in C++. Assuming I already have the Dll pointer, function name, etc. how would I do this basically. I'd bet that I'd need to use some assembly, but I've never used assembly in windows. Thanks.

This is not a trivial excercise. Why do you wish to do it? There may be an easier way to achieve your goal.

I am trying to write a VM somewhat like Java. I want to make native functions available to the visualized code. Would the easiest way be to do a switch statement on the number of arguments and in each case call the function with that many arguments? (Up to say 10 args.)

You seem to be lacking the basic knowledge necessary. Go spend some time learning assembly and how arguments are passed and then come back to this portion of your project. You need to learn about the stack and calling conventions.
