DLL versus Compiled function
I have been working in WR since past 3-4 months. And while surfing on net I came across someone requesting to have his TSL functions (WR compiled module) to be converted to DLL. Why because TSL functions in compiled module are slower than functions called thru DLLs. (not my words but it was part of that person's request) I want to know how much is that true? If yes then when one should really only go for TSL functions OR when one should really approach for DLL or when should it be both. In all choices performance is the central force. Your comments will be great so do share your thoughts.
Re: DLL versus Compiled function
There is a limit to what can be done in a Compiled Module in WinRunner.
You can do much more in a .DLL (Dynamic Link Library).
In a .DLL you can access WIN32api calls that require a Structure.
I don't think this is possible in a Compiled Module.
In the .DLL you can pass the elements of the Structure back to WinRunner as an Array.
