Description Juergen Funk (CIB) 2019-09-23 09:19:38 UTC
With this switch should be possible for on/off the creation of the:
 - Dump.ini 
 - crashdumpfile.dmp

Then it be possible, for define at the compile-time, what the state the switch have, default is ON

For short client-test need a environment variable for set it ON, only when the switch have the state OFF. 

For this feature need a improvment of the CrashReporter-Class, for simpler handling of the new switch.

In soffice.ini (sofficerc) the new entry "CrashDumpEnable" default is "true"

The compile-time-switch is "--disable-crashdump", then set the
switch to "false"

 - when "CrashDumpEnable" is false then the Dump.ini and the dump-file 
   are not written
 - when the entry "CrashDumpEnable" is missing, in this case is the
   default true, too
 - the checkbox under Options-General "Send crash reports to ..."
   is deactive and shows off (only view, not change the config)

The environment variable is "CRASH_DUMP_ENABLE" when set to any char,
then the switch "CrashDumpEnable=false" are overrules with true
and the Dump.ini and dump-file are write

Here gerrits
