mmap() support W95/NT in b18
Tue Jan 20 04:51:00 GMT 1998
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:
heap = mmap(NULL, 12288, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS,
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?
