I need to convert some plugins that work on Linux today to work on 
Windows. These plugins mostly uses some network functions that shouldn't 
be too difficult to port to Windows.

But the thing I'm not sure about is how the dynamic linking/loading 
works in the Windows version and how the plugin should be built.

But if the public source code for dot_draw contains all needed windows 
porting changes, I may take a look at this.

Does the olsrd-0.4.7 from www.olsr.org contain the windows source or can 
I get this source from another place?
