Err ... replying to myself.

I had a revelation ... what if I look at how Mono has implemented it.
So I happily navigate to the System.Diagnostics.Process implementation
and what do I get ?

    *private* *extern* *static* *int* GetPid_internal();

    *private* *extern* *static* *int*[] GetProcesses_internal();

Damn, I thought I had it easy.
What the hell does MethodImplOptions.InternalCall mean ?
Does it mean that the CLR takes care of it ?

So, can you please help me ?
I am not a good C++ programmer to search for code snippets that other 
people wrote.
