Segmentation fault


What in the hell is segmantation fault?
I have a code in c++ which has dynamic allocate memory. The code is being compiled under linux with gcc with no problem. But when i use another os, like solaris with gcc it says segmentation fault?

Segmentation faults are usually the result of touching memory in some way that you have no right to touch it. (e.g. accessing a dangling pointer, trying to write to the read-only memory reserved for string literals and constants, accessing memory beyond the bounds of an array...)
