 10 Using libltdl
 Libtool provides a small library, called `libltdl', that aims at hiding
 the various difficulties of dlopening libraries from programmers.  It
 consists of a header-file and a small C source file that can be
 distributed with applications that need dlopening functionality.  On
 some platforms, whose dynamic linkers are too limited for a simple
 implementation of `libltdl' services, it requires GNU DLD, or it will
 only emulate dynamic linking with libtool's dlpreopening mechanism.
 libltdl supports currently the following dynamic linking mechanisms:
    * `dlopen' (Solaris, Linux and various BSD flavors)
    * `shl_load' (HP-UX)
    * `LoadLibrary' (Win16 and Win32)
    * `load_add_on' (BeOS)
    * GNU DLD (emulates dynamic linking for static libraries)
    * libtool's dlpreopen (see  Dlpreopening)

 License, with the following exception:
