The minidumper utility can be used to create a minidump of a running Windows process. This minidump can be later analysed using breakpad or Windows debugging tools.
minidumper can be used with cygwin's Just-In-Time
debugging facility by adding
error_start=minidumper to the
CYGWIN environment variable. If
is set this way, then minidumper will be started whenever
a program encounters a fatal exception.
minidumper can also be started from the command line to
create a minidump of any running process. For compatibility with
dumper the target process is terminated after dumping
-n option is given.
