softlimit - runs another program with new resource limits.
softlimit [ opts ] child
opts is a series of getopt-style options. child consists of one or more arguments. softlimit sets soft resource limits as specified by opts. It then runs child.
In each of the following opts, n may be =, indicating that the soft limit should be set equal to the hard limit. opts controlling memory use: -m n Same as -d n -s n -l n -a n. -d n Limit the data segment per process to n bytes. -s n Limit the stack segment per process to n bytes. -l n Limit the locked physical pages per process to n bytes. This option has no effect on some operating systems. -a n Limit the total of all segments per process to n bytes. This option has no effect on some operating systems. -o n Limit the number of open file descriptors per process to n. This option has no effect on some operating systems. -p n Limit the number of processes per uid to n. opts controlling file sizes: -f n Limit output file sizes to n bytes. -c n Limit core file sizes to n bytes. Efficiency opts: -r n Limit the resident set size to n bytes. This limit is not enforced unless physical memory is full. -t n Limit the CPU time to n seconds. This limit is not enforced except that the process receives a SIGXCPU signal after n seconds.
