Dynamic Libraries and definition files

When programming on Windows, and working with dll's, I always include the corresponding .lib file so that I do not have to deal with actually dynamically loading the library, jut still have the ability to change the dll.

Is there something similar possible in Linux when working with .so files? I understand there is a .la file, but I am unsure of where this fits in with the whole process.

Or, am i going to have to dynamically load all my libraries on Linux?

Thanks

    No, you can link your programs with the *.a libraries.
