VERSION

0.64

SYNOPSIS

    $lock = Forks::Super::Sync->new(implementation => 'Win32Mutex', ...);
    $lock = Forks::Super::Sync->new(implementation => 'Win32::Mutex', ...);

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

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

DESCRIPTION

IPC synchronization object implemented with Win32::Mutex.

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

Disadvantages: Windows only. Gets complicated when a process dies without releasing its locks.
