NAME

fcntl - file control system all


SYNOPSIS

fcntl FILEHANDLE,FUNCTION,SCALAR


DESCRIPTION

Implements the fcntl(2) function. You'll probably have to say

    use Fcntl;

first to get the correct function definitions. Argument processing and value return works just like ioctl() below. Note that fcntl() will produce a fatal error if used on a machine that doesn't implement fcntl(2). For example:

    use Fcntl;
    fcntl($filehandle, F_GETLK, $packed_return_buffer);
