Perhaps this is the ultimate newbie question! Maybe not. I dont know!

Some how in the process of debugging a problem with do_sset my core file grew legs, wings, and or something else and disappeared.

My question is how do I recreate my core file? Or at least make a new one?

A new core file should be created every time your mud crashes, assuming you have your system settings right, check out the GDB guide of Nick's for what to set these too and how.

Nobody ever expects the spanish inquisition!

How big is your core file? Mine was about 3.6 Mb. eg.

$ ls -lh core*
-rw-------    1 nick     nick         3.6M Dec 21 07:21 core.12335

Under Cygwin, you don't seem to get core files BTW.
