Question how to create overflow-proof data segment?


hi
Is it possible to create a segment of memory(in c++), such that any attempt to overflow the data would trigger a SIGSEGV?

000000ddddddddd0000

e.g: the critical data lies in "ddddd", any attemp to write "000" would trigger SIGSEGV or crash the progam.

thanks!

I'd ask the Mods to move this to programming for better responses. Use the Report button on your post.
