PInvoke.net: the interop wiki
2 projects | /r/dotnet | 11 Mar 2023

Should you use c# for memory manipulation
5 projects | /r/csharp | 17 May 2022
I have a lot of C# P/Invoke / interop experience. Almost everything is possible in C#, I swear. Just keep in mind that C/C++ users have Windows.h include (meta-include which references thousands of another useful includes) that contain every single public fuction, structure or enum definition, i. e. you just go ahead and use it (while having to link against necessary libs correctly ofc). When you do the same thing in C# you have to P/Invoke through all this stuff by yourself. Consider taking a look at Vanara.PInvoke (https://github.com/dahall/Vanara), these packages might help you a lot in case you do not want to dive that deep.
