 Fcntl locking and NFS.


I'm writing a script to handle some systems and need to do file
locking on a file which needs to be NFS shared. Thus I can't use
flock. Further, fcntl seems to be a waste of time as I can't find any
good documentation on using it, and I need a method of locking which
is portable (to at least solaris, linux and HP-UX). I'm considering
dot locking, or some such, but not sure how to implement that in
perl. Any suggestions? (if anyone has fcntl working nicely I'll use
that too.)
