Core dump switch?

Core dump switch?

Post by Todd R. Fia » Thu, 18 Aug 1994 20:24:08

I am looking for a rather insidious bug in a large application I'm working
on.  I get a segmentation fault, but no core dump is being produced.  Is
there a way to tell Linux to dump core on segmentation faults?  If you have

Opinions expressed are mine, not MITRE's.


1. dump core or not dump core


Some of my programs dump core, others don't. I tried
it on RedHat 6.1 and Mandrake 7.0 with kernels 2.2.14
and 2.2.15. I tried tcsh and bash with coredumpsize
set to 1GB. It seems to be application specific.

Is there any other criteria when suppressing apart from
the type of signal and the size limitation?
The application that doesn't dump core contains signal
handlers for some signals, but not for SEGV or ABRT.
