Hi ,

I have little bit of knowledge in C++. When I run the following program its gives me segmentation error. I tried to do all the possible things by reading online but not able to figure out the error. I ran it suing gdb debugger but still it stays error is somewhere near n=atoi(argv[2]);
but i am not sure. Can somebdy please help me in finding the error.

my command line arguments are
./output 2 3 abc.pbm 1.2 abc2.pbm 1.3

Your compiler should have given you a bunch of compile errors. Here is the list I got with VC++ 2005 Express (yes I know you are using *nix but your compiler should have given you similar errors).

That isn't going to help when you have a hideous mismatch of c and c++. Learn the basics first.


The code you posted doesn't compile. Resolve the compilation errors. Also before accessing argv[2], you may want to ensure that agrv indeed contains those many elements. You can do that by checking the value of argc.
