Hello All,

This is probably a simple question but I cannot find an answer. I have a program which requires the stacksize to be unlimited so on Lion I type $limit stacksize unlimited, however when I try and do it on Mountain Lion I get limit: command not found. I saw that you can use $ulimit -s unlimited but this also doesn't work. Any Help please?

Thanks in advance...

For some unknown reason (to me) any bash version above 3.1 won't recognize the limit stacksize command. Did you try another shell?

Thanks for the reply, I thought I had replied before. It turns out I was using tcsh under Lion and Bash under mountain lion, so it works under a tcsh shell. So weird!
