Using File::Util will do this for you automatically.

use File::Util; my $ftl = File::Util->new(); # write to a file: (It is automatically locked) $ftl->write_file(file => '/foo/bar/baz.txt', content => 'blah blah bla +h'); # read from a file: (It is automatically locked) my $content = $ftl->load_file("/foo/bar/baz.txt"); # to get an open filehandle that is automatically locked, # see http://search.cpan.org/~tommy/File-Util-3.30_003/Util.pod#open_h +andle

    I get the impresssion that the OP is aware of the various methods of locking, but wants a way of making the code lock files without making any changes to the (already existing) main body of code.

    I couldn't quite get that far in my earlier suggestion, but thought a 1 letter regex was a close as you could get. ;-)
