Suggestion: Documentation: ulimit -f

Hi folks.

Currently, the documentation (both, help-command and manpage) on 
ulimit -f says:

"The maximum size of files created by the shell"

which may make one think of, it only affects files that are created
from the shell itself.

Assuming -f works like it should work, a text like:

"The maximum size of files created by the shell and its child processes"

might be better.

I know that the description of ulimit itself mentiones that. But the -f
description is the only one that says "by the shell".

Best regards,
