When a userland program segfaults, what determines whether
it also dumps core? Is there something either the programmer
or the user can do to force a cordump on segfault?
Thanks for any clues!
You might be interested in core(5), which has a list of criteria for a
core to be dumped. Two important factors are that the process must have
permission to create the file and the file must not be too big.
