in reply to a use for Win32::LoadLibrary()

I, for one, have never understood why Windows still has such a primitive way of supporting libraries ... no versioning.

    I'm a strict Unixian, but apparently Windows supports some form of library versioning since Windows XP. According to this page, true DLL numbering even became standard in Visual Studio 2010 (better late than never).

    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

      Are .so files versioned?
