( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi, at first I just want to thank you for the great tutorial, but I still have a problem.
I am working with a file which is accessible by many users via network. When I open the excel-file I want to check, whether the file is opened by an other user or not. I just want to work with it if it is not opened.
A simple die() if it is in use would be enough for me.
So, is it possible to check whether an other user has opened the file?

Great Regards,
- fish

    [Corion]: This is vaguely inspired by that list of "nasty" strings, which I'd like to replace among HTTP parameters, just to see whether the application crashes, but also for easy downloading of a list of URLs etc
    [Corion]: Maybe I'll just conoct something using Algorithm::Permute to create an (OO) generator for such requests, or a simple function.
    [Corion]: For testing I imagine one would want to test a random sampling of such "bad"/"unexpected" requests, while for downloading, one would want to generate them all in order, but not necessarily as a huge list
