RE: Segmentation faults and Core Dump
you can use "strace" on your exe file to get the some insight into what are
all the system calls called in your program. By using that info you can
track down what is happening?? Segmentation faults will come
due to read/write from/to a un allocated memory zone.
Check all pointer manipulations in ur program.
