I recently answered a question about the availability of the
flock(1) shell scripting utility on OS X. This question has just been migrated to Super User and I'm not entirely sure why.
The question is Mac OS X equivalent of Linux flock(1) command
The only use I can see for the
flock command would be in a shell script. My answer stated that the
flock command does not exist on OS X and that the alternative would be
shlock stands for shell.
shlock man page:
shlock -- create or verify a lock file for shell scripts
flock man page (on Linux):
flock - Manage locks from shell scripts
Is shell scripting not considered programming on Stack Overflow? This migration doesn't seem correct to me!
