Yes. After I changed with the sysctl -w command I confirmed with sysctl -a
proc.[pid].rlimit, they all

So, from my 'safe_mysqld' script, I could edit the following block:
# QQ The --open-files should be removed
--open-files=*) open_files=`echo "$arg" | sed -e "s;--[^=]*=;;"` ;;
--open-files-limit=*) open_files=`echo "$arg" | sed -e "s;--[^=]*=;;"` ;;
--core-file-size=*) core_file_size=`echo "$arg" | sed -e "s;--[^=]*=;;"` ;;
--timezone=*) TZ=`echo "$arg" | sed -e "s;--[^=]*=;;"` ; export TZ; ;;
--mysqld=*) MYSQLD=`echo "$arg" | sed -e "s;--[^=]*=;;"` ;;
tmp=`echo "$arg" | sed -e "s;--[^=]*=;;"`
if test -n "$tmp"
Where I see '--open-files-limit=*' above, I could change the '*' to '256'?
