Yes, though it was added to .NET after my initial attempt at using mem mapped files from C#.

Besides all that is is a wrapper like the one i had written years ago.

It doesn't change the basic problem which is:

var foo = new int[1000000]; //backed by disk, paged automatically, in C/C++

it's mainly because you can't use pointers in C#, and even if you use unsafe, you cannot pin objects to specific addresses in memory
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
