FINDING CORE FILES


To find and remove core files
conditionally:

# find ~ -name core -exec file {} \; -exec rm -i {} \;

"file" will show which executable
the core file is for and the -i
option to rm will allow you to
choose weather to delete it or not.

#### EXAMPLE ##############

# find ~ -name core -exec file {} \; -exec rm -i {} \;

/my/home/core: ELF 32-bit LSB core file of 'netscape-commun'
(signal 3), Intel 8
rm: remove `/my/home/core'? y
