8.7. NTDLL module

NTDLL provides most of the services you'd expect from a kernel. In lots of cases, KERNEL32 APIs are just wrappers to NTDLL APIs. There are however, some difference in the APIs (the NTDLL ones have quite often a bit wider semantics than their KERNEL32 counterparts). All the detailed functions we've described since the beginning of this chapter are in fact implemented in NTDLL, plus a great numbers of others we haven't written about yet.
