I am new to the group and this is my first post.
I have written a serial program..that communicates with a modbus device on the modbus protocol. this code is at the backend of a CGI script. I would like to block the serial port, whenever every fork of the scrip is using it. in short i wud like to serialize the requests on the serial port. i read abt the file-lock, but i am not sure if that will put the process that cud not get the port to sleep until it is free.
Is there some way of doing this with the help of any system calls, or some parameters to open (which wud block) the device file?
Any help will be appreciated.
thanks a lot

You can try one thing.First use dd command in linux and create a
backup of your current MBR on a floppy/CD,atleast it allows you to boot into
some OSs if not all.Put that backup(which should be a single file of 512
bytes) on hda1,so that you can use it with your boot.ini file later.
Then you can boot into DOS using a startup floppy or CD and revert
the MBR using 'fdisk /mbr'.I think this will bring back the contents of the
MBR (most probably the NTLDR) which were there before GRUB overwrote ur
MBR.Then you will be able to boot into XP,2K,98 as before.After getting
NTLDR alright,then just add an entry to your boot.ini with the backup file
as the target..If it works well then you'll be able to go into GRUB thru the
Windows boot menu.
*The crucial thing is to use the dd command neatly.
I think it will be
'dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/mnt/win_c/backup.mbr bs=512 count=1'
assuming that hda1 is mounted as win_c
Get it verified.*
Hope this helps.
