Okay, Grachan, I found the bin folders and I don't think there are any dll files in Linux. Hey, I thought you installed Linux Fedora way back in the Fall...what happened?
I will look around from some penguins, already found a couple.
Maybe it won't work in Linux.
just looked it up Yes linux does use dll's, however the name dll isn't a generic computer science term it's just what windows calls it, it's a function library and in linux they're called libraries and pretty much always have the postfix of .so.
Configuration data for programs and scripts used by the local system are stored in the directory /etc, the windows registry is a good idea in theory, but poorly implemented and poorly maintainable without third party applications, /etc would be the equivalent, but is in no way an inferior design.
Programs are maintained by package managers, these keep track of what files the package placed on the system and where they are, the location of these files are then used when the package is removed in order to make sure that the files are removed. It can also be used as a term for managers that download and install software for you, resolving dependencies in the process etc since it's function is package based, however the basic package manager manages packages on the local system.
