[Mono-list] Mono and Managed C++ ? Worth the effort ?

Hi All,


I have a project I am working on that I would like to port to Linux that
uses the PcapDotNet library:




It's an amazing library, fast and full featured. 


I chose this library over SharpPCap based on my reading that managed c++
would be quicker than pinvoke for fast packet capture.

(If this is the wrong assumption, please let me know).


Anyway. I would like to run this code on Linux if possible ?


There is a PcapDotNet.Core directory which contains all the C++/Wrapper
code, the rest of the code is C#.


My question is. Is it possible/feasible ? Worth my time/effort to port this
?   (ie..   #ifdef Windows   winpcap    elseif #linux    libpcap  etc etc)


Any info would be greatly appreciated.
