Is flock hardware or software based?

    The website I am building uses flock in many places to lock files. In
    the future this site will be running on multiple linux servers and a
    shared drive (probably Red Hat on IBM or Dell Blade servers). The
    question I have is, is flock handled on the hard drive with flags, or
    is it all contained in memory / temporary files by the OS? WOuld
    server B know that Server A had "flocked" a file?

    Your question has no connection to the Perl programming language.
