NAME ^

POSIX::1003::Limit - POSIX access to ulimit and rlimit

INHERITANCE ^

 POSIX::1003::Limit
   is a POSIX::1003::Module

SYNOPSIS ^

  # ULIMIT support

  use POSIX::1003::Limit; # load all names

  use POSIX::1003::Limit qw(ulimit);
  # keys are strings!
  $size = ulimit('UL_GETFSIZE');

  use POSIX::1003::Limit qw(ulimit UL_GETFSIZE);
  $size = UL_GETFSIZE;   # constants are subs

  use POSIX::1003::Limit '%ulimit';
  my $key = $ulimit{UL_GETFSIZE};
  $ulimit{_SC_NEW_KEY} = $key_code;
  $size = ulimit($key);

  print "$_\n" for keys %ulimit;

  # RLIMIT support

  use POSIX::1003::Limit ':rlimit';

  my ($cur, $max, $success) = getrlimit('RLIMIT_CORE');
  my ($cur, $max) = getrlimit('RLIMIT_CORE');
  my $cur = RLIMIT_CORE;

  my $success = setrlimit('RLIMIT_CORE', 1e6, 1e8);
  setrlimit('RLIMIT_CORE', 1e6) or die;
  setrlimit('RLIMIT_CORE', RLIM_SAVED_MAX, RLIM_INFINITY);
  RLIMIT_CORE(1e6, 1e8);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides access to the "ulimit" (user limit) and "rlimit" (resource limit) handling. On most systems, ulimit() is succeeded by rlimit() hence provides a very limited set of features.

See documentation in the base class.

METHODS ^

See documentation in the base class.

POSIX::1003::Limit->exampleValue(NAME)

See "METHODS" in POSIX::1003::Module

$obj->import()

See "METHODS" in POSIX::1003::Module

FUNCTIONS ^

Standard POSIX

getrlimit(RESOURCE)
  my ($cur, $max, $success) = getrlimit('RLIMIT_CORE');
  my ($cur, $max) = getrlimit('RLIMIT_CORE');
setrlimit(RESOURCE, CUR, [MAX])
  my $success = setrlimit('RLIMIT_CORE', 1e6, 1e8);
ulimit(NAME)

Returns the ulimit value related to the NAMEd constant. The NAME must be a string. undef will be returned when the NAME is not known by the system.

  my $filesize = ulimit('UL_GETFSIZE') || SSIZE_MAX;

Additional

rlimit_names()

Returns a list with all known resource names, unsorted.

ulimit_names()

Returns a list with all known names, unsorted.

CONSTANTS ^

%ulimit

This exported variable is a tied HASH which maps UL_* names on unique numbers, to be used with ulimit().

%rlimit

This exported variable is a tied HASH which maps RLIMIT_* names on unique numbers, to be used with getrlimit() and setrlimit().

The following constants where detected on your system when the module got installed. The second column shows the value which where returned at that time.

For ulimit, with a value when it is a getter:

  UL_GETFSIZE    9223372036854775807
  UL_GETMAXBRK   undef
  UL_GETOPENMAX  1024
  UL_SETFSIZE    (setter)

The constant names for rlimit, with the soft and hard limits that getrlimit() returned during installation of the module.
