Hi

Two questions about filemapping.

Is it possible to determine the size of a mapped file, when I just have a handle to the mappedfile.

Is it possible to increase the size of a mapped file. If I map lets say win.ini could I then append a section to the ini-file which would be saved physical to win.ini

You should be able to get that using 'GetFileSize()'...

If you only have the handle of the file mapping object, but not the handle of the file itself, then you can't get the size. Well, maybe by using undocumented functions, but not with official stuff.

Also you can't change the size of a file mapping. Sorry for the bad news. You have to unmap and remap to change the size.

Regards, Madshi.
