digitalmars.D.learn - Where do you get implib

reply Jesse Phillips <jessekphillips+D gmail.com> writes:
From what I gather, if you have a DLL to link, you can use implib to build a
static library that will do the linking for you. My research suggests that
everyone already has it, and may even come with Windows. But I don't seem to
have it. Where do you get it.

I found coffimplib to do conversion on DigitalMars's tools along with
documentation on using implib, but I don't see where you would actually get
implib.

On http://www.digitalmars.com/download/freecompiler.html there's a link to this file: http://ftp.digitalmars.com/bup.zip I think that's the implib you want? -- Johannes Pfau
