In partial response to this and the discussion you were having with
Alexandre Olivia regarding gcc-3.4 pch problems under cygwin.
After looking at the VMM kernel services documentation for 9x*:
It might be possible to overcome 9x's native memory mapping limitations
by supplying our own hooks to the 9x's system API. FWICT, it seems like
the kernel level provides a wealth of memory management, mapping, and
locking functionality that just isn't currently available to userspace
via conventional means.
While googling, I also ran across this article which I found to be quite
informative on the subject of memory mapping and how to deal with the
64kb-boundry limitations of MapViewofFile for Win9x/Me/2k/XP:
Maybe it is of some use? I could be wrong.
[*] If anyone's interested, I still have a copy of the last 9x DDK MS
distributed before they removed it for the newer NT-only versions.
