The added (including core dumps!) to my title is actually the main reason for me deciding to write this entry.

So very many times I see new programmers who write something, it compiles, so they run it, and then they are stumped because their programming resulted in a segment violation and possibly a core file. And now they're stuck, not knowing why this occurred and also having no real idea how to proceed.
