Another commenter pointed out Span, which I had forgotten about. It's a half measure** but gets me closer, however, it does not work in the DNF, only in Core and Standard i think.

GCHandle.Alloc will not let me pin to a specific address.

In order for .NET to do anything beyond span it would have to allow you to create unmanaged heaps to allocate objects on which the collector wouldn't collect.

It's designed such that it can't work, and I accept that.

It would just be nice if it had some kind of feature like the above to enable it.

** I don't actually want to store an array, i was using that as an example. My datastructure is complex and nested, which is precisely why i'd like to use vmem
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.
