i need gcc manual

i found error messages like this : Segmentation fault (Core dumped) when i compile it:"gcc LIFO.c" then run it:
"./a.out <sedikit.txt"
i use redhat 7.0
sedikit.txt is textfile, it contains:

i'd like to insert every text to be LIFO, but in the early i got problem like that???

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stddef.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

struct reckey
char *name;
struct reckey *next;
typedef struct reckey pkey;

int main()
pkey *header;
pkey *nodeBaru;
char *S;

header = (pkey *)0;

while (fgets(S,30,stdin))

i need manual to learn more about gcc. Do you know where (address of http/url) can i find it?
thanks before.

AFA what the code is trying to do, the problem here is that you've created a pointer to a memory location (char *S), and are assigned data to it (fgets(S, 30, stdin)) before any actual heap space is assigned to the pointer (*S). In order to use the space at *S, you need to allocate it first. There are two ways to go about this:

//  staticly define S as a string, with 30 characters of space
char S[30];

 // dynamically assigned memory space for input
char *S;

S = (char *)malloc(sizeof(char) * 30);
if(S == NULL)
  perror("Unable to malloc space for S");
else {
  printf("%s", S);
One of those options should solve your segfault problem.

Oh, and anytime you post code here, please surround the code with [code] [/code] tags, so that it will look nice, and be easier to read (preserving indentations) as above.

I like the second solution, seems to be traditional.
