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!
Erik already mentioned core(5).

Additionally, signal(3) will tell you the default action for the various 
signal types.
