[New-bugs-announce] [issue16595] Add resource.prlimit

Christian Heimes report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Christian Heimes:

Linux has an additional function to setrlimit and getrlimit which supports to query and/or modify resource limits of another process.


The patch implements resource.prlimit(pid, resource[, limits]) on all platforms that have a prlimit() function. I haven't included the regenerated configure script. You have to run autoreconf in order to test the new function.
