I just applied a patch to implement mandatory locking. It also supports
F_GETLK, with limited usability due to Windows restrictions, as I
explained in other mail. It does NOT yet support BSD flock locking,
only POSIX fcntl locking.
I dropped the F_MDLCK idea. Instead I implemented a specific fcntl code
to switch to mandatory locking on a file descriptor:
fcntl (fd, F_LCK_MANDATORY, 1);
The name F_SETLK_MAND didn't seem right. Anyway, afterwards, you can
use the usual locking fcntls, but with Windows mandatory locking
I didn't add a way for the user to switch on mandatory locking for now,
and I don't intend to do that for 1.7.19. Hope that helps, nevertheless.
I'm just about to generate a 2013-06-02 developer snapshot for 32 bit,
a 64 bit DLL will follow tomorrow.
Please give the 32 bit snapshot a try ASAP. I intend to release 1.7.19
very soon, probably tomorrow or Tuesday.
