Semaphore (2001-09-17)

Long Description:
Set up serial access for certain tasks over a network. This program can be used in a network situation, unlike standard mutex semaphores. However the simple algorithm used in this program doesn't always work perfectly. Occasionally two programs can actually obtain access to the resource simultaneously. Also, the five second delay between checks means that there could be up to five seconds between the resource becoming available, and the waiting program accepting it. Open source. (
