It seems that the "flock" wrapped by the fcntl module is the one
descriebd in "flock(2)", not "flock(3)" (just in case this might confuse
people...)

Quote : 
"""
fcntl.flock(fd, op)
Perform the lock operation op on file descriptor fd (file objects
providing a fileno() method are accepted as well). See the Unix manual
flock(3) for details. (On some systems, this function is emulated using
fcntl.)
"""

Pascal
