    I'm wondering what kind of error will result in linux issuing a 'killed' statement. For example, trying to access out of array bound will get a Segmentation Fault. I don't know what could make the OS give a 'Sigkill'

    Generally if the process attempts to exceed any limitations the OS has impossed on it such as the amount of memory it can allocate.
