Subject: Segmentation violation

	I've been compiling several programs over the past day to test out gcc,
and sometimes I can get a program to compile fine, but when I run it, I get a
message like
	"Segmentation violation in pointer 0x00000010 at d8:5c9d
	(register values)
	Call frame traceback EIPs:

First of all, what exactly does this mean?  Second, what can I do to keep it
from happening.  It doesn't matter whether I use the coff2exe program or run it
with go32, some programs simply show this error without hardly even starting.
There are only two things I have been able to come up with that are consistent
with all programs that crash this way: 1) they use pointers, and 2) they access
files.  I haven't tried isolating them further (ie, to find out if it is just
with files, or happens with all kinds of pointers).  Suggestions?  (It compiles
correctly on two other compilers.)
