Easy question about dll's

I need something like "ExitProc" but for dll's, because
"ExitProc should only be used when generating .EXE files."(Delphi help)
There is code that I was created for .exe files.
....
var SaveProc:Pointer;
....
SaveProc := ExitProc;
ExitProc := @MyExitProc

procedure MyExitProc;
begin
ExitProc := SaveProc
....
end;

Why not use the finalization part of a unit? Write the DLL code in a seperate unit, not the .dpr file, and add an initialization and a finalization part to it.

The help says "Inside a DLL, you can use the DLLProc variable instead."
But I think I've heard that there's a bug in the RTL which causes that your libraryproc is never called with DLL_PROCESS_DETACH (or was it DLL_THREAD_DETACH?).
You'd better test it for yourself.
Also try finalization sections, as Workshop_Alex suggested (Hi, Alex! :-)

Hi all.
To TOndrej:
I was tested it but when I unload dll then it allways call DLLProc with DLL_PROCESS_ATTACH parameter. :(

TO Workshop Alex:
I will try your idea later.
