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
