Don't lock files during linting (windows, parallel builds)
Lint open files on windows with file locking. This is the default method on windows. I suppose that lint uses fopen instead of OpenFile.
This breaks the possibility to use parallel builds for speed up reasons on code that share some code base.
Suggestion: Use OpenFile with OFSHAREDENYNONE to allow other lint instances and other programms to access that file. If you are worried about file deletion, use at least OFSHAREDENYWRITE.
PC-lint Plus does not lock source files read during analysis. Additionally, PC-lint Plus supports parallel analysis of source modules using the -max_threads option.
