Subject: [PATCH 21/21] doc: note optional BSD::Resource use
Date: Sun, 31 Jan 2021 22:28:33 -1000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210201082833.3293-22-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210201082833.3293-1-e@80x24.org>

We've actually been capable of using this since 2019(*) in our
spawn code for PSGI limiters.  And it's been used since 2016 in
our tests.  It's a dependency of SpamAssassin, and Danga::Socket
used it, too.

(*) commit 721368cd04bfbd03c0d9173fff633ae34f16409a
    ("spawn: support RLIMIT_CPU, RLIMIT_DATA and RLIMIT_CORE")
