Welcome to Coredump.    ☢↯

This is my little place to put Unix and Linux related information.

coredump definition:
"A copy of the contents of core, produced when a process is aborted by certain kinds of internal error. This is a copy of what was in memory that was owned by a process when it crashed."

It seems these day as though by default core dumps are suppressed, but you can still see them by causing a "Bus error" or "Segmentation fault" after running:

ulimit -c 1024

which is a 'bash' directive to limit core dumps to 1 Megabyte. [Choose your own size limit.]
