Core file analysis
Posted on 1998-03-19
Back in the "old" days, I used to analyze core dumps by printing them out and looking at them.
Now on our Unix system we have processes that core dump and since they were built optimized,
there is no symbolic information so a debugger is not very happy. At a minimum I like to be able
to extract the location that caused the fault from the core file. To get these points, you have to
provide a means to get ANY information from a core file produced by an optimized process. I will
not accept an answer that say build it with debug. If there is truely no way to extract information
from the core file, then I will withdraw the question.
