Capturing the entire text segment in a corefile

Eric Schrock talks about corefiles in his blog. A few months back I wrote infodoc 72790 on how to use coreadm to capture the whole text segment within a corefile.

Usually when you get a core dump and you ask Sun to have a look at it, we will ask for a whole host of other things (e.g. all libraries that it liks with and the binary). Capturing teh text segment actually grabs all of this so we don't need to ask for it; it is simply available.

This functionality is only available in Solaris 10 and is certainly going to make looking at corefiles substantially simpler.
