[Tutor] Too many open files

I have a small program which uses recursion while dealing with a flat file
database. I am opening and closing a number of files repeatedly during this
recursion and I feel like I have done the closing needed but I am still
being faced with a "too many files open" error.
My questions: Is there a variable I can reference which holds the number of
open files? How can I find out what the maximum number of open files is for
I am running as follows:
Python 2.1.1 (#1, Sep 4 2001, 12:16:58)
[GCC 3.0] on sunos5
Thanks loads in advance for any help!
