What is bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a wireless protocol or method to transfer
connect and transfer data between 2 devices such as
mobile phones, computers and laptops, digital cameras
etc. The exchange happens over a short-range radio
frequency. Bluetooth is usually meant fot transferring
information from devices that are relatively close to
When 2 devices are in range of each other, bluetooth
allows them to communicate. Since bluetooth uses a
radio communication system, the devices don't
necessarily need to be in view of each other.

What is a DLL?
A dynamic-link library (DLL) is an executable file,
mainly advantageous since many applications can
simultaneously use a singly copy of DLL in memory. A
library of Functions can be complied, linked and
stored independent of the applications using them.
Static link remains constant during program execution
whereas a dynamic link is created by the application
as and when required.
What is its usefulness?
Many processes can use a single DLL simultaneously,
sharing a single copy of the DLL in memory thereby
reducing swapping and saving memory.
Many applications can share a single copy of the DLL
on disk thus saving disk space.
Modifying the functions in a DLL can be done which
may not require the application using them to be
recompiled or relinked unless any arguments or return
values are modified.
