in reply to Error in CGI::Session on Windows: flock() not implemented

Just curious but which version of windows are you running?

I just added an option to svn that allows you to disable file locking. It should be available in the next release of CGI::Session.

    Windows 98SE.

    Do you think it could be the reason why it is not supported?

      According to perlport, seems to be. I don't think windows supports flock until you get into the NT's (2000, XP, etc).

      For the time being, you could add the following code to your script to override flock. (NOTE: Only do this for when you run on Windows 98 as the locks are very important with a filesystem that allows concurrent access to files).

      BEGIN { *CORE::GLOBAL::flock = sub { return 1; } }

      Note: Updated code.

        Thanks a lot for your help on this.

        By commenting the flock() function, I was able to get this working.
