ulimit -c

I have a hpux 11i V1 server that has a user using the c-shell. I tried to set the ulimit for creating core dumps to unlimited. I checked the Hard and Soft limits and I see the following:

ulimit -Sa
time(seconds) unlimited
file(blocks) unlimited
data(kbytes) 1792000
stack(kbytes) 32768
memory(kbytes) unlimited
coredump(blocks) 4194303
nofiles(descriptors) 2048

and

ulimit -Ha
time(seconds) unlimited
file(blocks) unlimited
data(kbytes) 1792000
stack(kbytes) 32768
memory(kbytes) unlimited
coredump(blocks) unlimited
nofiles(descriptors) 2048
How do I set the Soft limit to unlimited so that this user can have it set to unlimited.

Thanks
