INITSCRIPT(5)	      Linux System Administrator's Manual	 INITSCRIPT(5)

NAME
       initscript - script that	executes inittab commands.

SYNOPSIS
       /bin/sh /etc/initscript id runlevels action process

DESCRIPTION
       When  the  shell	script /etc/initscript is present, init	will use it to
       execute the commands from inittab.  This	script	can  be	 used  to  set
       things like ulimit and umask default values for every process.

EXAMPLES
       This is a sample	initscript, which might	be installed on	your system as
       /etc/initscript.sample.

	      #
	      #	initscript   Executed by init(8) for every program it
	      #		     wants to spawn like this:
	      #
	      #		     /bin/sh /etc/initscript <id> <level> <action> <process>
	      #

		# Set umask to safe level, and enable core dumps.
		umask 022
		ulimit -c 2097151
		PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin
		export PATH

		# Increase the hard filedescriptor limit for all processes
		# to 8192.  The	soft limit is still 1024, but any unpriviliged
		# process can increase it's soft limit up to the hardlimit
		# with "ulimit -Sn xxx"	(needs a 2.2.13	or later Linux kernel).
		ulimit -Hn 8192

		# Execute the program.
		eval exec "$4"

FILES
       /etc/inittab, /etc/initscript.
