extract information from core file in release mode

Hi All,
        We have an application in C++  on Solaris 5.6. We are using sun c++ 4.2 compiler.
Our application is frequently generating core files in production system. Here the application is running in the release mode.
We have tried to load the core file generated in release mode using dbx. after giving "where" command , it is showing the class name and the function name
  [7] CurrencyModifier_i::getCarRateInfoNodes(0x1029d0, 0xfbc07a20, 0xb75f8, 0x18f, 0xfe2bebb8, 0x107188), at 0xfe270054
My question here is : - how to extract more information from the core file generated in release mode. Currently i m loading the core file and executing where command.
Please help.

RE: extract information from core file in release mode

Build the non-release version, rename it to the same name as the release executable.  touch the core file so that it has a later date than the non-release version.  Load up the non-release version with the core file and then type where.  It is like "wow" the first time you see it.
