Changing limits with ulimit (Lab 3.1)

Hi everyone,

I am a bit unclear as to why exercise #4 in lab 3.1 results in an operation not permitted error. The solution states, "Note that if we had chosen a different limit, such as stack size (-s) we could raise back up again as the hard limit is unlimited.". What exactly does stack size refer to and how does it make a difference?

Thanks in advance.
