    It's where you write a DLL or SO in another language and then load it at runtime into another program. You're a pascal guy, right? Well pascal lacks some functions available in other languages (often api-specific functions). So you package them up into a library and load them through your favourite language. SOs and DLLs (SO = for linux, unix and bsd; DLL = for windows). They're mainly written in C and C++.

    Yeah, I do alot of pascal but I am looking into C++ more and more now just because, as you say, pascal lacks some things (although I like its simplicity). Thx for the answer.
