Creative use of core dump
Posted on 1998-11-16
We ha a quota sytem on the unix machines at our school, but after getting an 8 mb core dump today I noticed that the core dump didn't affect my quota. I was thinking of making a two part program to be able to temporarily store large files on my user, not because I need it but because it would be fun to se if it's possible
Part 1 reads a file into the memory and forces a core dump
Part 2 extracts the file from the core dump
Does anyone have any pointers how to achieve this?
I've programmed c alot, but I don't know much about core dumps.
