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.
