AG_LoadDSO() function loads the dynamic library file at
path into the current process's address space.
If the library has already been loaded, the existing
AG_DSO structure is returned and its reference count incremented.
name is a string identifier for the library for use by the
AG_Object(3) system independently of the file location.
If the library was loaded successfully, a pointer to the new
AG_DSO structure is returned.
If an error occured, NULL is returned and an error message is set.
AG_SymDSO() function tries to resolve the named
symbol. If successful, the value is returned into
rv and 0 is returned.
Otherwise, -1 is returned and an error message is set.
Under threads, the value returned into
rv remains valid as long as
AG_LockDSO() is in effect.
AG_SymDSO() automatically prepends an underscore to the symbol if required.
AG_UnlockDSO() acquire and release the lock protecting the list of loaded libraries
and their resolved symbols.
In multithreaded applications requiring the ability to unload modules, it is
not safe to reference resolved symbols without acquiring this lock.
AG_UnloadDSO() function decrements the reference count of the specified
If it reaches zero, the library is removed from the process's address space.
AG_LookupDSO() searches the list of currently loaded DSOs by the specified name.
If no match is found, NULL is returned.
