Release: bp153.1.11 Build date: Fri Feb 26 05:35:44 2021

Summary: A locking wrapper script
withlock is a locking wrapper script to make sure that some program isn't run
more than once. It is ideal to prevent periodic jobs spawned by cron from
stacking up.

The locks created are valid only while the wrapper is running, and thus will
never require a cleanup, as after a reboot. Thus, the wrapper is safe and easy
to use, and much better than implementing half-hearted locking within scripts.

  - I wrote a patch got-lock.patch to fix the trouble with the got-lock variable.
    I was testing the withlock and still had there the lock file after a
    program already end with exit code 0. I have look on the code together
    with our Python expert and we found the got-lock variable
    isn't marked ad global variable.I`ll send this to
    after we test it on our servers.

  - update to 0.3
    * At exit, unlink the lock file only if a lock was actually obtained.
      When waiting for a lock (using -w option) and timing out, the file
      was removed nevertheless. Thanks Bernhard Wiedemann for finding this
      bug and providing such a good test case, so the fix was easy.
* Mon Feb 10 2014
