Ok ... /me gets reminded of Cobol .. (Yow !)

I was thinking more of glibc wrappers than anything , especially since I
just love the speed of C ... But of course PInvoke is dependent on libffi
which might be just a small issue.

Getopt -- yes ... But common data structures in general perform better
with PInvoke , but require slightly complicated coding to manage memory.

Anyway I'm not jumping into the dotgnu-base bandwagon anytime soon , so
I guess I don't have much against your idea.... 

Attached is one of the classes I wrote to test pnet's array routines 
(and found a bug with this). The reason I'm not commiting it directly
is coz I have no time to write the decoding function .... sorry .

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
