It seems that my system's select call has a limitation of 1024 open
I need to learn about this restriction as I am programming a
multiplexed I/O server.
Is the 1024 open file descriptor limitation a per process limitation
or a system wide limitation?
How can I find out how many open files my system supports?
Where do I look to find out if my C / C++ implementation has similar
such file limits?
I have done some googling and have a general idea of the implications,
but I need details for my project.
What are some solutions ...
