Why program received SIGQUIT quited but did NOT generate the core file ????
The Advance Programming in Univ Environment book said programs received SIGQUIT default to terminate and generate a core file.
I coded a simple program with only one line code: sleep(20);
Then i ran the program.
Program was waiting there for 20 seconds, so I typed the terminal quit key(Control-backslash).
The program terminated as expected.
But there's no CORE FILE generated on the current directory ?
why did this happened?
Any helps would be greatly appreciated.
