mmap is actually quite simple to use. It makes an open file accessible 
like regular RAM. So after you mmap()ed the file, you treat it just as 
if it was in memory.
If getting, setting, appending a record by its number and finding a 
record in a sorted file is enough, take a look at my database 
implementation (searchdb.h and dbmacro.h). While the macro magic is 
probably hard to understand, using it is quite simple.
But writing your own implementation using mmap() shouldn't be hard,
