A core file is created when a program crash. This is the memory image just
before it crashed!

One can delete it, or examine it and track bugs...but 800Mo ^_^; is...whaou

My advice: delete it

Objet : 800 Meg /bin/core file??

  I was happily copying some directory structures from one machine to
another when my FTP client came across a file called 'core' in my
tomcat's bin directory.  This file was (and is) 821,313,536 bytes.
Anyone have the slightest idea what this file is and how it would grow
so large?
  Thanks in advance,
