We propose a new approach to developing statistical software and describe our project called the Dynamic Link Library for Statistical Analysis (DLLSA). The purpose of this project is to create DLLs for statistical analysis from various source programs which are various programming languages. This means that individual users will make the interface for input/output depending on their needs and environments while using this DLL as a statistical engine. There are many individual application software for the Windows system that can call the DLL. It is also easy to DLLize program source written in common programming languages such as Basic, C/C++, Fortran, and Pascal. The entire library can be downloaded for free from the DLLSA website (http://www.sci.kagoshima-u.ac.jp/̃dllsa/).
