ulimit -p error

Hello,

Does anyone know how to increase pipe size in ulimit. I know how to increase stack size and open files etc..., but is getting the following error when I do "ulimit -p 16":

ulimit -p 16
-bash: ulimit: pipe size: cannot modify limit: Invalid argument

ulimit -a
core file size (blocks, -c) 0
data seg size (kbytes, -d) unlimited
file size (blocks, -f) unlimited
max locked memory (kbytes, -l) 4
max memory size (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files (-n) 1024
pipe size (512 bytes, -p) 8
stack size (kbytes, -s) 20480
cpu time (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes (-u) 7168
virtual memory (kbytes, -v) unlimited
Thanks in advance
Joe

Re: ulimit -p error

See man ulimit:

-p The pipe size in 512-byte blocks (this may not be set)
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
