i have a long running script which takes a lot netcdf files and
generates SQL which get's piped to another process for database import.
the script failed about 1/2 way through (after about 5 days) with
segmentation fault.

is there a way to debug segfaulting script (i.e. is there a way to
generate core file) so i can find out more?

my understanding is that segmentation fault is usually caused by
addressing memory which does not belong to the process (bad pointer and
such).
