Hi, I'm using tcsh.
I get:

TZAV> limits
Resource limits (current):
  cputime              infinity secs
  filesize             infinity kB
  datasize              1048576 kB
  stacksize              262144 kB
  coredumpsize         infinity kB
  memoryuse            infinity kB
  memorylocked         infinity kB
  maxprocesses             5547
  openfiles               11095
  sbsize               infinity bytes
  vmemoryuse           infinity kB
  pseudo-terminals     infinity
  swapuse              infinity kB

I'd like to increase stacksize.
How do I do this?

"limits -s xxx" doesn't set the limits,
any anyway, in /etc/login.conf I get:

        :path=/sbin /bin /usr/sbin /usr/bin /usr/games /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/bin ~/bin:\

So where do my shell settings come from?

Many thanks
