Hi,
seems that the std.mmfile documentation is not up to date.
Unfortunately I haven't D2 on this machine. But afaik UnMap was part of 
std.mmfile.  I wrote this 'cause Robert plans to write a memory mapped 
database, and I've recommended him to use Phobos2 instead of Tango.

Thanks for the hint. I already took a look at the code and IIRC I saw UnMap in there. -- Robert M. Münch http://www.robertmuench.de

Since Andrew, the Author of Suneido, is going to port the core database from C++ to Java, he immediately has to find out that the memory mapped file implementation of SDK 1.5 is..erm...shi* 'cause of non existing UnMap, slicing, et al... D shines here. Also build in GC, std.algo. all in all a good starting point. IO Streaming, well, guess Andrei should say something about it. In case that you need some help in designing your DB, do not hesitate to ask Andrew. He's a nice guy and always willing to help. Bjoern
