in reply to Flock, Seek & WinNT

I'm wondering if it's necessary to use Flock and Seek or whether the WinNT Operating System already takes care of any problems I might run into.

flock() and seek() work just fine on NT/Win2K. I've worked on a commercial system that uses both. (Depending on your data, you'll probably want to use binmode() on the filehandle that you're seeking on.)
