Hi Michael,

Yeah, if someone is writing to a file in a Samba share, and another user
opens it up, they'll be notified that the file is currently in use, and that
it's available for read only.

This happens all of the time where I work (unfortunately).  Depending on
what kind of information is stored in your file, you may want to look into
storing your data in a database.

Hope this helps!

How long does one have to typically wait for an answer to a post?
  Tomorrow my message will have been up a week, and I've gotten no replies.
  It was about whether a file, while it was being written to, could
subsequently be opened by another client for reading.  I used a DVR with
chasing play as an example.  Didn't seem like that difficult of a question,
but maybe it isn't geeky enough for some.  (Or perhaps the answer is "No"
and people are too embarrassed to admit Samba can't do it.)
