Not completely true. Windows applications are free to open files in a manner that specifies that deleting is allowed. It is just a matter of which FILE_SHARE_* constants are specified. I find it unfortunate that the Unix-like interfaces for opening files on Windows specify that renaming and deleting is not to be allowed. I'd prefer that Unix-like calls result in more-Unix-like behavior.

Win32API::File documents the FILE_SHARE_* constants and allows one to make use of them from Perl. Sadly, I neglected to mention in those documents that FILE_SHARE_DELETE also allows the file to be renamed while it is still open.

    [stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
    [stevieb]: shmem It's something I desired to have years ago, which is why I took over berrybrew. Cross-platform build/test automation locally, or over the network Test::BrewBuild
    [shmem]: sounds good.
    [shmem]: but I'm crumbling smaller stones. remember...
    [stevieb]: I'm working on it to fatten it up and make it more reliant so I can finalize my Raspberry Pi automated build system for that software :) It's all well and fun, until I try to make it work with Windows lol
    [shmem]: "debugging a program is more difficult than to write it in the first place. If you code your program as smart as you are, you are, by definition, too dumb to debug it."
