Some feedback on this page

1) "disk file" sounds rather old fashioned, usually would just say "file", on this page, removing the word "disk"

"The default action of certain signals is to cause a process to
terminate and produce a /core dump file/, a disk file containing an"

2) We wouldn't regularly say "nonwritable" in English, "not writeable" is better English

3) Could i ask to clarify my understanding. For this "The binary being executed by the process does not have read
           permission enabled."
-- is this when the binary permissions are changed after it starts running?
I thought a core file was just a dump from RAM, does it really even need to open the ELF file again?

4) I noticed %P always gave me P1200 even after a reboot I recall, I had expected it be '1', do you see similar?

Cheers, Jonny
