I have a friend who has a Mac (Mojave) that recently ran out of space. I found that the space was being used by files in the
/cores folder. I deleted them and used to the command
sudo launchctl limit core 0 0 to turn off the creation of the files. But somehow the crash dump got turned back on and the HDD was full again. Now I'm curious as to what created the core dump.
How do a go about reading a core.xxx file when I don't know which program is crashing?
Can I identify the crashing application from the core dump?
