C++ "Segmentation Fault"
Posted by 142857 [send private reply] at November 02, 2002, 01:04:58 PM I am trying to run a tic-tac-toe program in Redhat Linux, and before, when I ran it with 1 predefined function in main, it was fine. But then, when I had it call another longer function in main, it ran the first function, but in place of the second function's output, it said "Segmentation fault". Do you know what the problem is? thanks

Look for cases of abusing pointers, passing bad arguments to system functions that might then be inspired to abuse pointers, etc..
Posted by 142857 [send private reply] at November 02, 2002, 11:44:00 PM yes. that's what happened. earlier in a function that was used in this function, i said:
returner += ...;
And I never set returner to 0 at the beginning. So I realized that, set it to 0, and now it works. Thanks
