core dump

[Common Iron Age jargon, preserved by Unix] 1. A copy of the contents of core, produced when a process is aborted by certain kinds of internal error.

2. A complete account of a human's knowledge on some subject (also brain dump), especially in a lecture or answer to an exam question. "Short, concise answers are better than core dumps" (from the instructions to an exam at Columbia).
