flock.Flock(fd, op)

Flock object uses fcntl.flock to lock (resp. unlock) file descriptor (fd) with operation (op) when entering (resp. leaving) runtime context related to it.

File objects providing a fileno() method are accepted as well.

Operation is one of the following values:

  • LOCK_SH - acquire a shared lock
  • LOCK_EX - acquire an exclusive lock

Operation can also be bitwise ORed with LOCK_NB to avoid blocking on lock acquisition.

Example:

with open(‘/tmp/file.lock’, ‘w’) as f:

blocking_lock = flock.Flock(f, flock.LOCK_EX) noblocking_lock = flock.Flock(f, flock.LOCK_EX|flock.LOCK_NB)

with blocking_lock:
pass # do something here
try:
with noblocking_lock:
pass # do something else here
except BlockingIOError:
pass
