How to identify read only functions in a dll? What is meant by read only in this case?

If you don't know what a read only function is, why do you want to find them ? If this is something you've been asked to do, then you should ask for clarification from whoever set you the assignment.

There is nothing wrong with what Joanne said there. I think your reply was less than polite, and less than grateful, to somebody who was simply trying to help.

Are you looking for C++ functions that have the "const" modifier? The Dependency Walker can show you the functions exported by a DLL, but it doesn't list the functions designated as const. I suspect that const is a compiler directive, and once the compiler has verified that the functions doesn't change the object, it drops that attribute (mainly because noone else needs to know).
