\bold {How do I generate a core file in Qt Creator?}
To trigger the GDB command that generates a core file while debugging,
select \gui {Window > Views > Debugger Log}. In the \gui Command field,
type \c gcore and press \key Enter. The core file is created in the
current working directory. You can specify another location for the file,
including a relative or absolute path, as an argument of the command.
To generate a temporary core file, select \gui {Create Snapshot} in the
context menu in the \gui Snapshot view. The core file is deleted when you
stop debugging.
