I'm not really familiar with MonoPosixHelper, but it looks like on mobile it uses the "__Internal" P/Invoke:
Maybe that helps.

> Looking over MonoPosixHelper, it *appears* this consists largely of Zlib. Zlib is already installed on Mac/iOS in /usr/lib. So, in theory, P/Invoke should work given a few tweaks to the DllImport.
> However, I cannot find any function called "unzOpenCurrentFile2" in MonoPosixHelper. I found some sort of mapping in WindowBase's IOFunctions.cs, but I'm not sure I understand it's purpose, nor if it is in any way related to this.
