I have got a small problem with this program. It takes a user's input of numbers

and sorts them by merge sort in increasing order using linked lists.

Unfortunately, a segmentation fault appears immediately after I input the numbers. Probably something to do with the merge sort function.

Help!

```
#include<iostream>
#include<limits>
using namespace std;
int psize,qsize,k,i;
struct node
{
int info;
node *next;
}*p,*q,*front,*front1,*rear1,*rear,*newptr,*ptr,*np,*np1;
node *create_new_node(int);
void insert (node *);
void insert1 (node *);
void display(node *);
void MergeSort(node *,int);
void copy(node *,node *);
int main()
{
int length=0;
front=rear=NULL;
int inf;
char ch='y';
inf=INT_MIN;
newptr=create_new_node(inf); //assigning least integer value to first node
if(newptr==NULL)
{
cout<<"\nCannot create new node..";
return 0;
}
insert(newptr); //calling fuction to insert new node to the linked list
while(ch=='y'||ch=='Y')
{
cout<<"\nEnter information for the new node..";
cin>>inf;
newptr=create_new_node(inf);
if(newptr==NULL) //checking if new node creation is successful
{
cout<<"\nCannot create new node..";
return 0;
}
insert(newptr);
length++;
cout<<"\nNow the list is:\n";
display(front);
cout<<"\nPress Y to enter more nodes, N to exit..";
cin>>ch;
}
MergeSort(front,length);
}
