Thanks Mikko,
Though helpful,  this leaves me even more confused :) When I use only
the import library and headers, my code compiled with Eiffel works
just fine. Eiffel compiles to C actually, so how on earth my Eiffel
code is finding the dll and invoking the functions? I guess I need to
figure this out.
