how to detect new programmers

<DDODDH> i have no errors now, but i got something weird "Segmentation fault"
<DDODDH> what does that mean

For those who don't know, "segmentation fault" is Linux's way of saying "you screwed up and did something you shouldn't have." And it's one of those things that intermediate programmers learn to dread.

(Advanced programmers have much nastier things to deal with Think about it - if it crashes, you know where it crashed. If it just fails subtlely and outputs wrong results, *that* gets nasty.)
