DotLock (1.00) Copyright (c) 1999, Ken Barber DotLock is a multipurpose queing locking system. Originally designed to take some of the pain away from locking on NFS filesystems. This module allows script writers to develop on multiple hosts when locking between these hosts is an issue. It allows queing - scary but true. It also provides an atomic method of locking by using the "link" function between files. The locking/queing method provided is purely on a file manipulation level. Also note that this object does not handle signals. If the program is interrupted, any open lockfiles will be left behind. This is considered alpha software, use at your own risk. INSTALLATION After untarring the package, its as easy as: 1. perl Makefile.PL 2. make 3. make test 4. make install Enjoy.
