URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/File-FcntlLock/
Summary     : Perl module for file locking with fcntl
Description :
FcntlLock is a module to do file locking in an object oriented
fashion using the fcntl(2) system call. This allows locks on parts
of a file as well as on the whole file and overcomes some known
problems with flock(2), on which Perl's flock() function is based.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Update perl-Mail-Box to 2.097.
No longer require spamassassin.
2.097 now randomizes boundary string to avoid (undemonstrated) security risks with boundary guessing.
