ulimit - allow non-root usage

In RHEL, ulimit is limited to root usage.
Since it's a built-in command, you can't chmod it to allow "regular" (non-root) users to utilize it.

How would I go about allowing user "MyLogin" to utilize the ulimit command?

My guess is that what you want to do here is to allow a normal user to manipulate ulimits for himself and other users.Am I right??

If yes then "sudo" is your answer ; using sudo you can allow certain users to gain access to commands that only root can normally execute...

If I misunderstood ur requirement please post back...
