RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for ulimit (redhat section 3)

ULIMIT(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual				ULIMIT(3)

NAME
       ulimit - get and set user limits

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ulimit.h>

       long ulimit(int cmd, long newlimit);

DESCRIPTION
       Warning:  This  routine is obsolete. The include file is no longer provided by glibc.  Use
       getrlimit(2), setrlimit(2) and sysconf(3) instead.  For	the  shell  command  ulimit,  see
       bash(1).

       The  ulimit call will get or set some limit for the current process.  The cmd argument can
       have one of the following values.

       UL_GETFSIZE
	      Return the limit on the size of a file, in units of 512 bytes.

       UL_SETFSIZE
	      Set the limit on the size of a file.

       3      (Not implemented for Linux.)  Return the maximum possible address of the data  seg-
	      ment.

       4      (Implemented  but  no  symbolic  constant  provided.)  Return the maximum number of
	      files that the calling process can open.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, ulimit returns a nonnegative value.	On error, -1 is returned,  and	errno  is
       set appropriately.

ERRORS
       EPERM  A non-root process tried to increase a limit.

CONFORMING TO
