There is of course fpFlock for unix,


However this means implementing file locking differently on unix and
windows computers, which makes the application not cross platform.

I was hoping for something like LockFile and UnlockFile for both windows
and unix, instead of implementing locking using IFDEF WINDOWS and IFDEF
