Re: gcore equivalent for tru64 ?

Well... the idea of gcore is that it doesn't kill the process.

It's possible to attach debuggers (dbx or ladebug) to running processes and it is possible to take a full system dump (livedump) without crashing the system, but I don't believe there is an equivalent of gcore on Tru64 UNIX.
