critical impact:

ulimit - different parameter name (CrCh31)

UN Impacts

Problem description

The ulimit function on Tru64 UNIX allows UL_GETBREAK as a command parameter, but the parameter does not exist on HP-UX. The HP-UX function uses a different parameter name for the same operation.

The ulimit function sets and gets process limits. On Tru64 UNIX, the allowable parameter values are: UL_GETFSIZE, UL_SETFSIZE, and UL_GETBREAK. On HP-UX, the allowable parameter values are: UL_GETFSIZE, UL_SETFSIZE, and UL_GETMAXBRK.


C/C++ Misc. IdentifiersUL_GETBREAK

Solution description

Modify your code.

Because UL_GETBREAK and UL_GETMAXBRK perform the same operation, change UL_GETBREAK to UL_GETMAXBRK in all calls to ulimit.
