GCORE(1)                NetBSD General Commands Manual                GCORE(1)

NAME
     gcore -- get core images of running process

SYNOPSIS
     gcore [-c corename] pid [pid ...]

DESCRIPTION
     gcore creates a core image of the specified processes suitable for use
     with gdb(1).  By default, the core is written to the file
     ``<progname>.core'', where ``<progname>'' is the program name of the
     process corresponding to the pid that is given on the command line.  This
     filename can be changed by supplying the -c corename argument, or setting
     ``proc.<pid>.corename'' with sysctl(8).

FILES
     <progname>.core    The core image.

SEE ALSO
     gdb(1), sysctl(8)

HISTORY
     gcore appeared in BSD 4.2, disappeared in NetBSD 1.2, and reappeared in
     NetBSD 2.0.

BUGS
     The process is not stopped while the core file is generated, so it might
     not be consistent.
