2:09:38x1bzzr Q: How would you share memory across functions in a shared library? I know the user could allocate memory and pass that to the library, but I was wondering how to have the library allocate memory for internal use without the library user having to know anything about it, but that the dll would keep a reference to across library calls. I tried using a global that gets initialized in the dll main with VirtualAlloc, but later when I call a function the library exports the global is zero
