NAME ^

Mail::Box::Locker::Multi - lock a folder in all ways which work

INHERITANCE ^

 Mail::Box::Locker::Multi
   is a Mail::Box::Locker
   is a Mail::Reporter

SYNOPSIS ^

 See Mail::Box::Locker

DESCRIPTION ^

The ::Multi locker locks a folder in each way it can. This way, the chance is highest that any other program will leave the folder alone during our access to it.

NFS-lock and Flock are tried. More may be added when the ways to lock are extended. DotLock overlaps with NFS-lock, but NFS-lock is safer, so that version is preferred.

Mail::Box::Locker::Multi->new(%options)

You may also pass all %options understood by the initiated lockers used by the multi locker.

 -Option --Defined in       --Default
  expires  Mail::Box::Locker  1 hour
  file     Mail::Box::Locker  undef
  folder   Mail::Box::Locker  <undef>
  log      Mail::Reporter     'WARNINGS'
  method   Mail::Box::Locker  'MULTI'
  timeout  Mail::Box::Locker  10 seconds
  trace    Mail::Reporter     'WARNINGS'
  use                         <all possible>
expires => SECONDS
file => FILENAME
folder => FOLDER
log => LEVEL
method => STRING|CLASS|ARRAY
timeout => SECONDS|'NOTIMEOUT'
trace => LEVEL
use => ARRAY-of-(NAMES|LOCKER)

Array of locker type NAMES or LOCKER objects to be used to lock one folder. The type NAMES are converted into objects. When you create your own LOCKER objects, be sure to set the timeout very short (preferrably to 1).

Some locking types are not available on some platforms, so they will not be excluded from the default list (NFS POSIX Flock).

example: using a subset of multi-lockers

 my $locker = Mail::Box::Locker::Multi->new(use => ['DOTLOCK','FLOCK']);

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Error: Package $package does not implement $method.

Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does not implement this method where it should. This message means that some other related classes do implement this method however the class at hand does not. Probably you should investigate this and probably inform the author of the package.
