If your problem is that you need to prevent multiple scripts from altering the same part of the file at the same time, then no, the general case is not built-in to any OS that I know of. The Be OS will automatically lock the area of a read so you can do read/modify/write on an area easily, but there is no way to handle the general case and you didn't give details.
