You don't need multiple native or managed binaries for this. You can just wrap each platform and detect what platform you're on in the .NET runtime via RuntimeInformation class.

So you would probably only need one for Win32 and one for POSIX (aka Linux, BSD and macOS).

Because a .NET lib doesn't exist for what you need thats portable, you will have to make one that is.
