    Runtime error 'segmentation fault (core dumped)'

    Keep gettint this error in a small program of mine and have been unable to find out what it is and why i'm getting it. Program compiles fine but as soon as the user enters some data and hits enter it gives this above error.

    Well, Post the code, we'll try to help.
    Don't forget to use code-tags, when you post the code.

    OK, just for fun, here's my guesses:

    Are you doing either of these:

    >>char *s;
    >> fgets(s, 20, stdin);

    or maybe

    >>int i
    >>scanf("%d", i);

    Now, post your code if you want help.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
