In Fox 2.6 for UNIX I use the following:

DO WHILE ! RLOCK()
=INKEY(.1)
ENDDO

This keeps RLOCK() from flooding the network with thousands of lock requests per second when it fails the first time.

I am told by a fellow programmer that the 2.6 UNIX INKEY() is flawed and causes problems. Anyone know anything about that?
