Hi all,

Been using Rails for 5 months or so, one thing that is bugging me is why
some of my applications end up having pretty large ruby18.core files
(30+ megs) in the root of the rails directory?

I've spent a good while looking for a reason but haven't had any luck -
could anyone enlighten me?

I pre-apologise if I'm missing something really simple here but this has
me stumped..

Running FreeBSD 6.1 with Rails 1.1.6..

That is probably a coredump. Your application crashes and it leaves core
dumps. This can be disabled in different ways depending on your OS
kern.maxcoredumpsize to 0 in FreeBSD I blv). ulimit -c 0 in Linux I blv.
