GETTING MORE FROM SIGSEGV


For those who want to get
more info on SIGSEGV for
your application in Linux,
you can use the following
command "catchsegv".

for eg: consider the program (a.c)
main()
{
char *p = 0;
*p = 'a';
}

$cc a.c
$catchsegv a.out #produces the following output


*** Segmentation fault
