You mean a plugin, that is loaded at build runtime, instead of build
compiletime? Plugin is fine, but Add-on if you prefer, whatever.

Pointers are fun! Typecasting makes pointers safer. C++ introduced
typecasting strictness, and I have to say, even though I don't know
much C++ and mostly code C, I prefer it's way.
You need a good book. I haven't read many, so I am sure there are other
more advanced ones, but I liked "C in Plain English", which is EXACTLY
Really, anyone who is relatively smart can understand C in a few days
with this book.

If you can understand anything Apple right in their technotes, you can
understand C in a few days too, just with a good book. Apple are really
not good at explaining stuff to their programmers in an easy way. Its a
bit bizarre, because they are famed for their ease of use when it comes
to newbies on the non-programmer side.
