Description Frank A. Krueger 2012-12-05 18:17:38 UTC
When I try to use MemoryMappedFile.CreateFromFile, I get the following exception when running in the simulator:

[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.MissingMethodException: Cannot find the requested method.
  at (wrapper managed-to-native) System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles.MemoryMapImpl:mono_filesize_from_path (string)
  at System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles.MemoryMapImpl.Open (System.String path, FileMode mode, Int64 capacity, MemoryMappedFileAccess access) [0x00000] in /Developer/MonoTouch/Source/mono/mcs/class/System.Core/System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles/MemoryMappedFile.cs:358

The repo is simply:

using (var mm = MemoryMappedFile.CreateFromFile ("file", FileMode.Open, null, 0L, MemoryMappedFileAccess.Read)) {

Comment 1 Sebastien Pouliot 2012-12-06 08:49:51 UTC
Rodrigo added MemoryMappedFile support last year (managed code) but some functions (inclduing the one above) are not part of mono (at least not the one used when JITing / simulator).

#if (defined (__MACH__) && defined (TARGET_ARM)) || defined (TARGET_ANDROID)
Comment 2 Rodrigo Kumpera 2012-12-06 12:30:07 UTC
Fixed on MM and bumped monotouch head. Please bump 6.0-series if this bug needs to be fixed there as well.
