Disambiguation  edit

The Tcl Core
C implementation of Tcl managed by the Tcl Core Team.

Description  edit

The term core is most frequently found in the phrase core dump, which derives from magnetic core memory.

core is also used to refer to the built-in components of an extensible system such as Tcl.

A core dump is the memory image that is produced if a program crashes and dumps core. A core dump can be a valuable help for debugging the crash, if you are an expert in understanding C stack traces and particularly if you configured Tcl and the extensions with -enable-symbols.

DKF: A core dump is like the corpse of a process on Unix. Sometimes, you just have to carry out an autopsy to satisfy the coroner...
