Re: ulimit - unlimited

You can't.  The size of the data and stack is limited to the corresponding kernel parms, maxdsiz and maxssiz.

Your maxdsiz is at the maximum.  maxssiz is reasonable.

If your 32 bit application needs more space, you can link with -N to get 2 Gb.


Of course, the *_64bit versions of those parms can be made much bigger.
