  • I would guess that sentinel and semaphore file locking are similar, just using different names.

    I would think flocking should work, although using a semaphore file would be the belts and suspenders approach if the semaphore file was flocked properly.

    Then again all flocking is dependent upon all apps playing according to the rules.
    • My concern is due to portability issues; I want this thing to work properly anywhere it goes, and my understanding of flock is that its implementation on Win* is crappy if it's not NT-based.
