Googling around I discovered some similar tools (alphabetical order):

  • flock: ...
  • getlock: Getlock is a simple command-line file locking program...
  • halockrun: Run command while holding exclusive lock on file...
  • lockrun: Run cron job with overrun protection...
  • solo: is a very simple script (10 lines) that prevents a program from running more than one copy at a time...

Is FLoM really necessary? You'll decide!


If you discovered something else, please send it to me: I would be happy to expand the above list.
