What is the ramification of changing  Soft DATA segment to -1?

i.e.

from

 Soft DATA segment                                  [262144]

to

 Soft DATA segment                                  [-1]

I think -1 is unlimited.

There are many users, and we can't allow everybody have unlimited.  I want to know what is recommended in general.

thx much

You are correct the value '-1' is unlimited. There is no general recommendation for this value - either users are complaining that they are getting errors due to lack of data segment size or not. If they are, raise the value. If they are not, do not change it.

PS This is a per user value, so you need not change it for all users.
