 Replying to [comment:2 igaztanaga]:
> As explained in the documentation, managed segments have internal
 metadata, you can't start overwritting memory corrupting internal
 structures. If you really want to overrite file contents, then you should
 use file_mapping + mapped_region, see:

 It is a good link, but I am still not sure that the string

 '''managed_mapped_file mfile( open_or_create, "lol", 10 );'''

 should throw exception because of "10". It is not mentioned in
 '''documentation'''. And how should I do offset if '''get_address()'''
 returns the pointer to "internal metadata"?
