    There's a bug in one of your scripts that causes it to crash and create a large file called core.

    I'm not exactly sure. Maybe delete the file then run a script and see if it shows up again.

    cron is an area i am unfamiliar with, i wanted to use a script that uses cron, for some reason it didnt work for me so i didnt use it, however cron continues to run and i havent any idea on what to do to stop it.

    Telnet in and type

    cron -r
    or
    crontab -r

    that should remove the cron file.

    crontab -r appeared to be a usable command, it also appeared to be whats creating the core file.

    i thank you, sir

    best regards,
    sawz

    arg, stupid core, i hate them

    I'm a linux guy, and i get core files all the time.

    My Java compiler spefically tells me "core dumped" if there is a bug. Every week or so i do a search for core, and end up getting sometimes 60 megs of hard disk space.

    I feel your pain man
