You are looking for P/Invoke.

You do will need a Reference to System.Runtime.InteropServices and then do the following, if your C DLL contains a function called increase_int:

[DllImport("mylib.dll")]
private static extern int increase_int(int in_value);

and use it from your code doing

int newValue = increase_int(oldValue);
