    Huh ?

    I suppose you mean, that I can get the name of the executable that caused the
    core dump, when running size - right ?

    Well, you can do that easier with the file command.

    But that doesn't prevent my 7 other processes from overwriting the core file
    of the 8'th process which was the first one to crash. Multi-process systems
    can, on occation, produce such "domino dumps". Separate names is a *must have*.

    And having process names is nicer than having PIDs - I don't mind if my core
    files are over-written on subsequent runs, actually it's nice (keeps the disks
    from filling up).
