Lock Directory

RequestLock and ReleaseLock operate by atomically creating and destroying a temporary directory. We name the directory after the script so that we will lock out other copies of that script, but not other scripts.

  $LockDirectory = "[Blank /tmp]/$ScriptName"; 

For example, the script wiki might use a lock directory of /tmp/wiki.
