postmort [-dpt] -c corefile -s symbfile
-c Use the named corefile
-d Dump all text symbols and segment data
-p Display the kernel process table
-s Use the named symbol file
-t Display a stack backtrace
postmort # display the data from the file 'core'
Postmort does a simple static analysis of a PC Minix core file; By
default, it looks for the file 'core' in the local directory and loads
that for analysis; it also searches for the file 'symbol.out', and if
that fails 'a.out', expecting them to contain symbol information for the
core file. It is not a fatal error if the symbol files don't exist.
The stack backtrace is slightly tricky, and may go on longer than is
really justified, since there's no easy way for it to know when to stop.
Treat its results with caution.
