I'm curious if anyone can recommend a simple PD file lock system..
something like a daemon/library package that will allow one to lock
a file and read/write it?
I have always had bad past experiences with locking files in a
network wide fashion with all the Unix techniques, esp. in medium
I've always had to write my own file lock daemons because the unix
techniques can often hang in un-interruptable ways due to untunable
problems with rpc.lockd/statd. I'm presented with this problem again,
and am wondering if something in the PD can do it well..
Thanks for any help..
