I was wondering how to determine if there are locked files for you for the next iteration. Although I thought that ls would do it, I was wrong. There is lslk which seems to check all locked files on the box and then I found this which seems a better fit:


While not a big fan of Windoze, it does show lck files when something puts a lock on a file in FAT32 and above. I've not seen something like that in the *nix world, but did find the lslk mentioned above. I have some loose responsibility for a svn server here so I've written it down in my crib page for future use.
