What do you mean you don't get a core dump?  I suppose it actually
depends on what OS you're running (erm, actually, I don't suppose it
does, I *know* it does).  But all UNIX OS' support core dumps, and
if you're using a UNIX OS and not getting core dumps, then you probably
have core dumps limited to a particular size.  In Linux bash, 'ulimit
-a' should get you a listing of all the limits.  I think 'ulimit -c xx'
will change the limit ('xx' being replaced by a number).

In Windows, I'm fairly certain that MSVC or Borland have a way to
track bugs to their line/function/file.  And since there are ports of
gdb to DOS (and perhaps Windows), then the ports of gcc to DOS and
Windows likely have a method for creating core dumps (likely, but
it's possible to not).
