	! Title  : DEMO_LOCK_CEF_100.BAS
	! Author : Neil Rieck
	! Created: 00.04.03
	! Purpose: to demonstrate the use of COMMON EVENT FLAGS for use as a method to control access to a shared resource
	! Use    : run 2 instances of this program from 2 terminals logged in with the same user id.
	! Note   : Clusters #0 and #1 are Local Event Flags (LEF) and may only be used by the same process to coordinate things
	!	   like ASTs etc.
	!        : Clusters #2 and #3 are Common Event Flags (CEF) and may only be used by processes with the same UIC
