lockersh - Run a command under a global lock
lockersh [--dhost <host> --port <port>] --lock <name> [args....]
Obtain a global IPC::Locker lock with the passed name.
When the lock is granted, run the arguments as a command in the foreground. When the foreground process exits, release the lock, and return the executed command's exit status.
This makes it very easy to insure only one copy of a program executes across a clump:
lockersh --lock one_sleep_runs sleep 10
