    Would somebody recomment a book for learning "gdb" & "core dump"?

    I was a Visual Studio programmer. Now I am coding C++ in Linux. I found I have to learn gdb and learn to understand "core dump" Would somebody suggest books? Thanks!

    $ info gdb
    $ man gdb

    If you want to debug a "core" file, use:
    $ gdb program core

    There are probably lots of other gdb tutorials and documentation online, if you just can be bothered with googling.

    Searching Amazon for a minute yields this:

    I have no idea if it's a good book or not. Generally O'Reilly's books aren't completely useless, but some are not quite as good as others.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
