MMAP is a UNIX system call that maps files into memory. It’s a method used for memory-mapped file I/O. It brings in the optimization of lazy loading or demand paging such that the I/O or reading file doesn’t happen when the memory allocation is done, but when the memory is accessed. In this article, I’ll be explaining how what mmap is and how it can be used for sharing memory in Linux. It kind of is the backbone of shared memory in Android.
