In general, if you aren't a decent developer, they aren't much good.
$ file core
will tell you what program made it.
(gdb) core core
<gdb will print stuff to tell you it's loading the core file>
<gdb will print what functions it called, before it crashed>
If you have compiled the program with -g , you can tell what line in the
program you crashed at & stuff, with "where". Typing "list" will list the
source code at the part it crashed at.
