Instead of being relatively coy about what you are importing:

use Fcntl qw(:flock);

Just be explicit, and the problem goes away:

use Fcntl qw< LOCK_EX SEEK_END >;

(And your code becomes clearer.)

    To: tye,

    Damn I forgot this part, completely. Thanks for pointing out.

    Can you help me also unserstand a bit the truncate() part?

    I have some questions and I do not know if I am correct or wrong, since is the first time that I am applying that. I have written a short exaplanation on my initial question at the end.

    Again thank you for your time and effort
