What is the difference between an EXE and a DLL?..

Answer / manoj

Exe file is the executable(machine language) file which is
generated after successful compilation and linking process
of a programing language.

these files are especially created under dos Environment
like ms-dos this file is treated as the exteranal command
and whenever we execute this file the dos gives control to
the exe file and lets it to do what ever has been
instructed in this file.

in contrast the .DLL file usually comes under the 32-Bit
world like windows which contains all the API(Application
program interface)funtions which are called during
execution of a program.
