Linux 2.6 - man page for resource.h (linux section 7posix)

<sys/resource.h>(P)		    POSIX Programmer's Manual		      <sys/resource.h>(P)

NAME
       sys/resource.h - definitions for XSI resource operations

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/resource.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The <sys/resource.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants as possible val-
       ues of the which argument of getpriority() and setpriority():

       PRIO_PROCESS
	      Identifies the who argument as a process ID.

       PRIO_PGRP
	      Identifies the who argument as a process group ID.

       PRIO_USER
	      Identifies the who argument as a user ID.

       The following type shall be defined through typedef:

       rlim_t Unsigned integer type used for limit values.

       The following symbolic constants shall be defined:

       RLIM_INFINITY
	      A value of rlim_t indicating no limit.

       RLIM_SAVED_MAX
	      A value of type rlim_t indicating an unrepresentable saved hard limit.

       RLIM_SAVED_CUR
	      A value of type rlim_t indicating an unrepresentable saved soft limit.

       On implementations where all resource limits  are  representable  in  an  object  of  type
       rlim_t, RLIM_SAVED_MAX and RLIM_SAVED_CUR need not be distinct from RLIM_INFINITY.

       The  following symbolic constants shall be defined as possible values of the who parameter
       of getrusage():

       RUSAGE_SELF
	      Returns information about the current process.

       RUSAGE_CHILDREN
	      Returns information about children of the current process.

       The <sys/resource.h> header shall define the rlimit structure that includes at  least  the
       following members:

	      rlim_t rlim_cur  The current (soft) limit.
	      rlim_t rlim_max  The hard limit.

       The  <sys/resource.h>  header shall define the rusage structure that includes at least the
       following members:

	      struct timeval ru_utime  User time used.
	      struct timeval ru_stime  System time used.

       The timeval structure shall be defined as described in <sys/time.h> .

       The following symbolic constants shall be defined as  possible  values  for  the  resource
       argument of getrlimit() and setrlimit():

       RLIMIT_CORE
	      Limit on size of core file.

       RLIMIT_CPU
	      Limit on CPU time per process.

       RLIMIT_DATA
	      Limit on data segment size.

       RLIMIT_FSIZE
	      Limit on file size.

       RLIMIT_NOFILE
	      Limit on number of open files.

       RLIMIT_STACK
	      Limit on stack size.

       RLIMIT_AS
	      Limit on address space size.

       The  following  shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function
       prototypes shall be provided.

	      int  getpriority(int, id_t);
	      int  getrlimit(int, struct rlimit *);
	      int  getrusage(int, struct rusage *);
	      int  setpriority(int, id_t, int);
	      int  setrlimit(int, const struct rlimit *);

       The id_t type shall be defined through typedef as described in <sys/types.h> .

       Inclusion  of  the  <sys/resource.h>  header  may  also	make  visible  all  symbols  from
       <sys/time.h>.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
