looking for the 'lockfile' program
 
I'm trying to determine if the 'lockfile' program is still available
or has been obsoleted for some reason.

I'm not looking for lockfile_create or friends, nor flock, but the
program described here:

http://linux.about.com/library/cmd/blcmdl1_lockfile.htm

Thanks,
Britton

For the future, you can easily check things like this by visiting http://packages.debian.org/file:<filename>


For instance,
http://packages.debian.org/search?searchon=contents&keywords=lockfile

We should start referring to processes which run in the background by their
correct technical name... paenguins.

Squeeze & testing have a lockfile-progs

ie apt-cache search lockfile*

Description-en: Programs for locking and unlocking files and mailboxes
This package includes several programs to safely lock and unlock
files and mailboxes from the command line. These include:
.
lockfile-create
lockfile-remove
lockfile-touchlock
mail-lock
mail-unlock
mail-touchlock
.
These programs use liblockfile to perform the file locking and
unlocking, so they are guaranteed compatible with Debian's
file locking policies.
