[PATCH] bash(1): ulimit: mention 512-vs-1024 byte sizes with -c/-f in PO


From: Mike Frysinger
Subject: [PATCH] bash(1): ulimit: mention 512-vs-1024 byte sizes with -c/-f in POSIX mode
Date: Fri, 5 Jun 2015 06:51:49 -0400

The change POSIX mode doc discusses these differences, but it would be
useful if the ulimit section also contained the minor note about the
differences in sizes for the -c/-f flags.
