    Unhappy Core Dump

    Lately In my home directory i have been seeing files such as core.1903 1894 in my home directory. I think this might relate to that I am running some sort of buggy code. But lately X has been crashing also. Can someone explain to me why these core files keep getting created and how to fix the problem. I've googled some stuff but im sure someone here at AO can explain this problem more thouroughly. Thanks

    I am familiar with core dumps from some of my first attempts at c. It happenes when memory is allocated for something and what is sent to that location is too big for the size it was set to. In this case i dont think anyone could be sure, without looking at the dump, what exactly is causing it. I would suggest taking a look at it or posting in this thread and then maybe someone can help.
