mono-config - Mono runtime file format configuration
The Mono runtime will load configuration data from the installation
prefix /etc/mono/config file, the ~/.mono/config or from the file
pointed by the MONO_CONFIG environment variable.
For each assembly loaded a config file with the name:
/path/to/the/assembly.exe.config is loaded, too.
This file controls the behavior of the runtime.
The file contains an XML-like file with various sections, all of them
contained inside a section (It actually uses GMarkup to parse the
You use the dllmap directive to map shared libraries referenced by
P/Invoke in your assemblies to a different shared library.
This is typically used to map Windows libraries to Unix library names.
The dllmap element takes two attributes:
dll This should be the same string used in the DllImport attribute
target This should be the name of the library where the function can be
found: this name should be suitable for use with the platform
native shared library loading routines (dlopen etc.), so you may
want to check the manpages for that, too.
This directive can be used to map a specific dll/function pair to a
different library and also a different function name. It should appear
inside a dllmap element with only the dll attribute specified.
The dllentry element takes 3 attributes:
dll This is the target library, where the function can be found.
name This is the name of the fuction as it appears in the metadata:
it is the name of the P/Invoke method.
target This is the name of the function to lookup instead of the name
specified in the P/Invoke method.
The following example maps references to the ‘cygwin1.dll’ shared
library to the ‘libc.so.6’ file.
<dllmap dll="cygwin1.dll" target="libc.so.6"/>
This one maps the following C# method:
static extern void somefunction ();
to differentfunction in libdifferent.so.
<dllentry dll="libdifferent.so" name="somefunction" target="differentfunction" />
