Hi ,

My OS is Monta Vista Linux 3.1

In case of my program crash i am not getting the core file even after setting the ulimit -c unlimited

Disk Space available in this partition is 25 GB

In what kind of situations we would not be getting the core ?

Is there any thing to be setted ?

    depending on your shell see following commands (man-pages)
     limit, ulimit
    (either shell built-in or executable)

    ulimit -c ulimited
    is for sh/ksh/bash shell.
    If your program run in another shell script or call another shell script, such as csh/tcsh, then
    you might need to set
    limit coredumpsize unlimited
    in the shell script and
    echo "limit coredumpsize unlimited" >> ~/.cshrc
