Once again, I cannot map objects to a specific process address space in .NET. No amount of marshalling or unsafe code will change that.

It might be possible to create an unmanaged cross compiled library and link to the different calling conventions etc, by conditional P/Invoke, at the cost of extra complexity and adds marshalling to a class that shouldn't have it for perf reasons, and still requiring a cross compiled unmanaged binary and still therefore being limited to certain platforms, not all .NET platforms. So again, it doesn't fulfill the basic requirement because of that latter bit.

I accept that it can't be done in .NET
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.
