INITSCRIPT(5)  Linux System Administrator's Manual  INITSCRIPT(5)

NAME
       initscript - script that executes inittab commands.

SYNOPSIS
       /bin/sh /etc/initscript id runlevels action process

DESCRIPTION
       When  the  shell  script  /etc/initscript is present, init
       will use it to execute the commands  from  inittab.   This
       script  can  be  used  to set things like ulimit and umask
       default values for every process.

EXAMPLES
       This is a sample initscript, which might be  installed  on
       your system as /etc/initscript.sample.

              #
              # initscript   Executed by init(8) for every program it
              #              wants to spawn like this:
              #
              #              /bin/sh /etc/initscript <id> <level> <action> <process>
              #

                # Set umask to safe level, and enable core dumps.
                umask 022
                ulimit -c 2097151
