It would be a nice idea to add a path for find, in general. However, as the guy originally asking this question stated that he's not root I would suggest to him not to do a find through the whole / (as you seem to suggest) because then root will surely kick his ass };-) .... The easiest thing to do is not to dump a core in the first time, two people already posted how to do this for different sh/OS. However, if you would like to have the possibility to check the core after a nasty crash you might want to use a cronjob or put a rm command into the circle autorun script. Another nice thing, of course, would be inreasing your disk quota ;) -Aragorn@MultiMUD -- Dr. Stefan A.
