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.. Thanks, Simon.

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