This example demonstrates how you would capture an error that is happening due to an exception raised while dividing by zero.
This example demonstrates a program that can dump a core due to non-initialized memory.
Both the programs are written in C++ and generate core dump due to different reasons. After going through these two examples, you should be in a position to debug your C or C++ programs generating core dumps.
