Standard Input & Output (STDIO) limits the number of file descriptors to 256 in a 32-bit application.
Last updated on MAY 31, 2015
Applies to:Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
Even when the file descriptor limit is set beyond 256 (i.e. via limit or ulimit on the shell), the maximum number of file pointers that can be opened
by STDIO functions (for instance fopen(), fdopen(), and popen()) is still limited to 256 in a 32-bit application.
File descriptor numbers range from 0 to 255.
