I hate to say it; but you know you can tweak the OS to allow excessive file handle usage.
I once wrote a Haskell script to empty a very, vary large S3 bucket. On Linux, I had to put it in a shell while loop to keep it going, due to file handle exhaustion. On my Mac it ran without incident. :; ulimit unlimited Turns out the `ulimit` on my Mac is pretty high. -- Jason Dusek |...tweak the OS...| http://www.kegel.com/c10k.html#limits.filehandles _______________________________________________ Haskell-Cafe mailing list Haskell-Cafe@haskell.org http://www.haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell-cafe
