[2:2:302]dgilbert@repeat:~> ulimit -a
core file size (blocks)  unlimited
data seg size (kbytes)   65536
file size (blocks)       unlimited
max memory size (kbytes) 71096
stack size (kbytes)      65536
cpu time (seconds)       unlimited
max user processes       80
pipe size (512 bytes)    1
open files               64
virtual memory (kbytes)  131072

	I want to actually increase the 'hard' size (which is a kernel
parameter somewhere, I believe).  Before you go off the deep end about
the sizes... the sparc has 80 Meg memory --- and yes I use it all ---
I often have 20-30% of my 256 M of swap used.
