    Hi all!

    I´m writing data to disk from a certain plugin and I´m trying to read data from the file created on disk from this plugin from another plugin, the problem is that it fails because the second plugin states that the file is in use. How do I release the file locking? I tried using GetClone() to clone the file for the other plugin but that did´nt work.

    Thanks

    Use file->Close(). This undocumented function was added because the garbage collector didn't always close the file in time. (In theory you could just as well do "file = NULL; gc();".)
