mmap() support W95/NT in b18
Thu Jan 22 09:32:00 GMT 1998
I have seen an implementation of mmap() for win95/nt in a msql port that was
done for msvc. I dont know if it could be compiled with cygnus, but it may
be worth looking at. You can find that msql port through:
They have two different ports listed, one for cygnus, and one for msvc. The
mmap port I saw was in the msvc version, but there may be info on porting
mmap in the pages about the cygnus port.

> On Win95, it fails with errno=22 (Invalid argument).
> On WindowsNT (3.51), it fails with errno=13 (Permission denied).
