[Mono-list] searching the right way - call dll or so

This may not be the best way to do this, but until someone suggests something
better, something like this would work.

First, have a method to detect the platform:

public static bool IsWindows()
	if (Environment.OSVersion.Platform == PlatformID.Win32NT ||
Environment.OSVersion.Platform == PlatformID.Win32Windows)
		return true;
	return false;

And then you could have a static variable to store the extension...

DllExtension = IsWindows() ? "dll" : "so";

And then simply do: "unmanagedFileName" + MyClass.DllExtension;
