The locking mechanism is designed to be used in an environment where you may lose edits to a file, because another user or application has written to the file whilst editing. CRiSP provides numerous safety checks to ensure you do not edit or overwrite someone elses work, but these mechanisms tend to kick in after you have made any modifications to a file, rather than before you start an editing session.


"CRiSP is the only UNIX text editor I've seen that would allow a DOS/Windows user to be immediately productive. But it also has a seemingly unlimited list of power-user features. I like it so much at work that I bought it to use at home (under Linux)."
