Moving to GitHub, slowly

The software on this pages will slowly be moved to GitHub https://github.com/hilbix/. The CVS repository will be migrated to GIT as well, so the history will be preserved, a bit. See FAQ.

Scylla and Charybdis, lockdir - Tools

The tools are developed under Linux with ESR's paradigm release early, release often in mind.
So you can consider this beta software, or alpha, or pre-alpha, or even worse ;)

Have a look in the download directory for all downloads.
As always here, all you get is the source. No binaries here.

This does not create a lockfile, it creates a lockdir. While it waits it presents you with a waiting indicator. Returns true if successful, false otherwise. You can give a maximum waiting time. If this time is reached the lockdir is removed via rmdir. (This can fail, by purpose.)
