Re: [Re: what is this core?]

whenever an unusual condition occures for example u try to access an  illegal
memory location (i.e. one thet is outside the scope of the program u r tryin
to run) a file called core is created to post mortem the whole scenerio.
nonetheless u wont be needing this file.
one way to prevent the creation of such a file is to always keep such file
created with 000 permissions.
but u may find programs such as netsccape dumping core n overwriting the file.
then u will have to do it again.

bye !!

or the service has 2 be started or sumthin.
