Hi Petr, > I believe modern Linux systems have much higher than 1024 file descriptor > per process limits.
Right. However Joh-Tob was talking about the number of child processes. There is a limit in PicoLisp in how many child processes can be spawned with (fork), caused by the size of an 'fd_set' structure for the select() system call. (fork) creates two pipes to the parent for each child process. The limitation can be overcome with http://software-lab.de/doc/refD.html#detach for child processes who do not depend on interprocess communication. ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Unsubscribe
