View Full Version : What happens when my program crashes?

In almost all cases, MemoryScape stops execution before the program actually exits. Because the program hasn't yet existed, all the state information that MemoryScape collects is still available. (MemoryScape discards this information immediately after your program exits.)
<p>If the crash was due to a memory event, MemoryScape notifies you about the problem in exactly the same way that it does when it detects the problem while the program is executing. You can now click on the event indicator to find out what the cause of the problem is.
<p>If the program created a core file, you can load this file back into MemoryScape and then create reports. Of course, because it is a core file, MemoryScape is not able to execute the program.
