NAME

Forks::Super::Sync::Win32 - Forks::Super sync object using Win32::Semaphore

SYNOPSIS

    $lock = Forks::Super::Sync->new(implementation => 'Win32', ...);

    $pid=fork();
    $lock->releaseAfterFork();

    if ($pid == 0) { # child code
       $lock->acquire(...);
       $lock->release(...);
    } else {
       $lock->acquire(...);
       $lock->release(...);
    }

DESCRIPTION

IPC synchronization object implemented with Win32::Semaphore.

Advantages: fast, doesn't create files or use filehandles

Disadvantages: Windows only. And I have unverified concerns about what it will do if a lock-holder exits ungracefully.
