Re: question about a core file

Hi Edward:

This is the name of the process that created the core file. In this case, 'sie'.

Regards!

Re: question about a core file

There was an executable whose basename is sie that got a signal 11 and then aborted.
You can always use "find / -name sie" to find it. But good guesses can make it faster.
