Hi,

Following is the function which is giving me a segmentation fault.
I do not know what is wrong in this code. I am counting the number of lines in the file.

char f11;
        char c;
        int f12 = 0;
        FILE *ilfile;

        ifstream ficnf;
        int size_f = 0;
        int num_p = 0;
        /* Count the number of lines in the file */
        string linef;
        ficnf.open(ftp,ios::in);
        if (!ficnf.is_open())
        {
                cout<< "Error opening file" << "\n";
                exit(-1);
        }
        else
        {
                while(getline(ficnf,linef))
                {
                        if(linef[0] == 'p' || linef[0] == 'c')
                        num_p++;
                        size_f++;
                }
                        printf("File contains lines = %d \n",size_f);
        }
        ficnf.clear();
        ficnf.close();
I am getting the follwoing trace when i use gdb debugger

Any help is appreciated.

hi,

i am not sure i understand ur question. The file has 2000 lines and getline gives a segmentation fault after reading line number 891

Thanks

And how should we know what line 891 is?

main_program.cpp:1116 - the prog is way over 1000 lines, so you're looking at a pin-hole of the real problem
