Funny thing is that there is a Perl version which uses a Win32 API 
to the native calls.  If you're interested:

	http://www.generation.net/~cybersky/Perl/perlmod.htm

module is called memmap which uses API.pm to access the native Win32 
functions.  One should be able to convert it to C/C++ easily enough.  
Haven't tried running with it yet.
