Hi All,
I' looking for a way to debug/analyze a core file. Can somebody let me know how to do it. Thanks in advance,

If you have "dbx" installed, you can use that. see "man dbx" for details.
Note that unless your executable was compiled with debugging information enabled ( typically -g ), then you won't be able to get much sense out of the core file however you look at it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
