Subject read/write lockout
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2003 23:29:51 GMT
On W2K, read/write locks can result in writer starvation.  If there are a
lot of readers a writer may never get a chance to lock at all.  I'm assuming
that 'fairness' in this sense is simply not guaranteed by APR.  I was
wondering if anyone else had run up against this and how they solved it.
