getdtablesize: get descriptor table size

NAME

getdtablesize - get descriptor table size

SYNOPSIS

#include <unistd.h> int getdtablesize(void); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): getdtablesize(): Since glibc 2.12: _BSD_SOURCE || !(_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600) Before glibc 2.12: _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED

DESCRIPTION

getdtablesize() returns the maximum number of files a process can have open, one more than the largest possible value for a file descriptor.

RETURN VALUE

The current limit on the number of open files per process.
ERRORS
On Linux, getdtablesize() can return any of the errors described for getrlimit(2); see NOTES below.
CONFORMING TO
SVr4, 4.4BSD (the getdtablesize() function first appeared in 4.2BSD). It is not specified in POSIX.1-2001; portable applications should employ sysconf(_SC_OPEN_MAX) instead of this call.

NOTES

getdtablesize() is implemented as a libc library function. The glibc version calls getrlimit(2) and returns the current RLIMIT_NOFILE limit, or OPEN_MAX when that fails. The libc4 and libc5 versions return OPEN_MAX (set to 256 since Linux 0.98.4).

SEE ALSO

close(2), dup(2), getrlimit(2), open(2)
