Signals and abort and corefiles

Could someone tell me:

1. If I send a BUS error to a running process using kill -BUS, why isn't a
core file produced?
2. If I trap the BUS error, and call the abort() call, again a core file
isn't produced

(a core file is produced by the above on HPUX, AIX, SCO, linux (I think),
Unixware, DGUX).

Many thanks,
Ian Collins
