mmap() support W95/NT in b18

I'm trying to port some SW that uses mmap() extensively. The FAQ for
b18 says the system call on Windows95 is a dummy. But how about
WindowsNT, is it supposed to work?

Specifically, the program fails on the following system call:

            -1, 0);

On Win95, it fails with errno=22 (Invalid argument).

On WindowsNT (3.51), it fails with errno=13 (Permission denied).

The question is
- Is it supposed to work on any platform?
- How about the coolview package, any improvement expected there?
- If not, is there a chance it will be supported in a future version?

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
