Lock-UnMatic 1.0 is done ...

... and with it comes the possibility to conveniently determine what processes are locking your files on the Mac. The utility uses the terminal-commands lsof (list of open files) as well as kill (to quit the processes).

What startet out as a little utility - which should have been not much of work - now turned into one week of work which used up all my spare time. I just hope this tool will make somebody's live easier. And that Apple will one day incorporate an equal functionality into the Finder.

I won't do a version of Lock-UnMatic for Windows, as there are already enough other tools for this type of problem - like WhoLockMe, for example.

If any questions arise - or if you find any faults - don't hesitate to contact me via email or using the built-in feedback-form!
