    Well, I think the problem is already solved:

    swen@hobbiton </tmp>: cat test.c
    printf("%d\n", 0/0);
    swen@hobbiton </tmp>: gcc -g test.c -o coretest
    swen@hobbiton </tmp>: ./coretest
    zsh: 501 floating point exception (core dumped) ./coretest
    swen@hobbiton </tmp>: file core
    core: ELF 32-bit LSB core file of 'coretest' (signal 8), Intel 80386, version 1, stripped
    swen@hobbiton </tmp>: file -v
    swen@hobbiton </tmp>: gdb -c core coretest

    This is with gdb-4.16 and the latest "file" from Debian.

    Greetings, Swen
