Thanks for the info. The hint is for unix admins who don't want coredumps turned on by users. Hope that helps.

Great to know. As someone else already posted, those who know the Terminal don't automatically know a thing about cron. I'm one; I am all over that Terminal, but the OSX is the first machine I've ever had access to as an admin, so I never had exposure to things that an ordinary user wouldn't see. I have learned to copy, move, rename and search files, for example, but never to cron.

It's great to know that coredumps are off by default. I'm glad someone not only pointed that out for us, but showed us how to prove it to ourselves using the "limit" commands. Excellent!
