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.

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