He is a Linux fan and does much of his work on this system.


When a process wants to write into a file, it asks the kernel to lock that file – or a part hcristophe it. The classical case in the OS theory is the definitive lock of both processes.

Various processes simultaneously can benefit from a lock for reading since no one will attempt to change the file content. The files locking principle allows to solve this problem. Let’s change the line 30 previously empty and insert:.

Let’s finish with this digression insisting in how it’s important to check, not only the system calls success or failure, but the error codes too, before taking any action about system security.
