The ulimit command would be the proper choice here. If you want in on a permanent basis then use the limit.conf file. I'm not sure why you would want/need a separate script to do the same thing? Do you have a specific reason for this?

Sorry for the weak information.
Im running debian gnu linux. Ive found one silly
perl script that can check after how many processes a user / group can run but is doesnt work very well. There also found out that /etc/security/limit.conf works ( pam ). Its the same as the ulimit command. But i would very much like a script that does this.
