Don't quote me, but I am rather sure that you can't do that in a platform-agnostic manner. Going with P/Invoke or a low-level library in C will require platform ties as the C API doesn't know of the concept you need (hey, the C standard doesn't even have a concept of alignment). From what I know, the C++ standard library doesn't have this concept either and the moment your standard libraries don't provide something, you have to work with IFDEFs for platforms. Be it with .NET, C++ or any other language.
