There is talk of (eventually) debugging minidumps on other platforms.  Also some crash capture tools can make minidumps, even on Mac and Linux hosts.  I could imagine you might also want to be able to debug a core file from a non-Windows host on a Windows host.  So core-file/windows could end up being confusing/misleading in the long run.

How about

Unfortunately, no.

It looks like you can, because the API has methods for getting extra values associated with the stop reason (SBThread::GetStopReasonDataCount and SBThread::GetStopReasonDataAtIndex), but no data about exceptions is not plumbed through--the process plugins just generate a string description and attach it to the stop reason.  I spent quite a bit of time discovering this.

I would like to make the process plugins provide the information in a way that makes it available through those APIs as a separate patch.
