Description clears file locks which have not been cleared through normal system operation.

File locks are set by Pick/BASIC "filelock" statements and other mechanisms.

File locks are displayed by "list-locks" as special item locks with an item id of "*" and a hash of "0".

Note that a "clear-locks (i" or a "clear-locks" will release all file locks.
Syntax unlock-file file.reference {(options}
Options i Suppresses "item 'x' released" message.
