I am a newbie in Solaris. My application crashed and generated a core dump in Solaris 8. I am trying to analyse what happen.

Please tell me how to check or analyse the core dump. Using what command? Please give me example.

Thank you.

there is another simple command
pstack - which tells u in very high level where u see the problem.

pstack core.
it will dump the stack trace of core file, and tells u what path it took to dump the core.
for more though debugging u have to use
dbx/gdb/mdb kind of debuggers.

gdb is GNU free debugging tool and also avilable for Solaris, it is very handy and useful.
