If using 'bash', try 'help ulimit'

I get:
ulimit -a
core file size (blocks)     unlimited
data seg size (kbytes)      2097148
file size (blocks)          unlimited
open files                  64
pipe size (512 bytes)       10
stack size (kbytes)         8192
cpu time (seconds)          unlimited
max user processes          1973
virtual memory (kbytes)     unlimited

Another idea would be to make the world[] a list of pointers and if one of
those is NULL, use the defaults.  This will use an extra
sizeof(struct room_data *) bytes per room but will save memory if you have
a lot of default rooms because you won't need a full 'room_data' structure.
