Programs for locking and unlocking files and mailboxes
This package includes several programs to safely lock and unlock files and mailboxes from the command line. These include
lockfile-create lockfile-remove lockfile-touchlock mail-lock mail-unlock mail-touchlock
These programs use liblockfile to perform the file locking and unlocking, so they are guaranteed compatible with Debian’s file locking policies.
