SubjectRe: magic file entry to understand core dumps
Date
	Works for me:

lunar:~> make test
cc test.c -o test
./test
lunar:~> ./test
Floating exception (core dumped)
lunar:~> file core
core: ELF 32-bit LSB core file i386 (386 and up) Version 1
lunar:~> cat test.c
main()
{
printf("%d\n", 0/0);
}
lunar:~>
