I a Perl program that checks a folder for incoming files and this program utilizes Perl's file locking mechanism which appears to work universally with other Window's programs. It does not work with your client which either implies that you are not locking the files that you are writing to on the user's local machine or a machine on the LAN. As example would be to fetch a file from a customer's machine via FTP and your client and to write it locally. The Perl program attempts to lock its incoming file which would be your outgoing file and the Perl program is able to lock the incoming file, indicating that your client is not locking the file that it is writing to. I would officially request that this file locking support be added for the local output files.
