Any "RLIMIT" operation available to limit on your system can be set by defining that operation as an environment variable with a "PERL_" prefix. See your system "setrlimit" manpage for available resources which can be limited.
The following limit values are in megabytes: "DATA", "RSS", "STACK", "FSIZE", "CORE", "MEMLOCK"; all others are treated as their natural unit.
If the value of the variable is of the form "S:H", "S" is treated as the soft limit, and "H" is the hard limit. If it is just a single number, it is used for both soft and hard limits.
