I wrote some stuff using those, and it did the execv fine, but didn't =

The standard Unix functions are implemented in namespace

working from managed code.

I have done a C daemon using Embedded Mono to run a
Windows Service implemented in .NET on Linux. I have=20
sent a first proposal to Mono-Devel list some days ago:

You can take the attached daemon as starting point for=20
your own implementation or help promoting the inclusion=20
of something like that in Mono ;-)
