Standard libraries and import libraries
These libraries contain code that is linked into the user's program
by SLINK as part of the program's executable image. They are easy to build
and need no special initialisation. Win32 standard and import libraries
are very similar to UNIX COFF archives and for that reason are referred
to as archives. Archives consist of complete object files loaded in together
with various headers. These object files are referred to as members. Win32
archives usually have the filename extension .LIB.
