Description Marius Ungureanu 2017-04-29 22:50:26 UTC
Given an extern definition for printf:

static extern int printf(string format, int num);

on Windows, the following DllImport's are valid

[DllImport("msvcrt.dll    ")]
[DllImport("msvcrt.dll                        ")]

This is not valid though:

[DllImport(" msvcrt.dll")]

On Mono, this fails with dll not found. Probably, Windows does a TrimEnd on the library name.
Comment 1 Marius Ungureanu 2017-04-29 23:01:46 UTC
var attr = typeof(MainClass).GetMethod("printf", BindingFlags.Static | BindingFlags.NonPublic).GetCustomAttribute<DllImportAttribute>();

attr.Value includes the whitespace.

So the fix is in the library loading code.

This is the only member that supports trailing whitespace removal.
