ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

In the absence of code the only explanation I can come up with is: wizards did it! If you don't wish to share the code of your program, write a different, smaller program which does little more but exemplify the problem you are facing; and post that program instead.
You're declaring a pointer to "struct timeval *" ... but your never ALLOCATING the timeval record that's being pointed to!!!!
Guaranteed segmentation violation
Just declare the variable, and pass "&addressof" into the function. It will make you much happier
Regrettably, a buffer overrun in one part of the program (e.g. your call time "gettimeofday()" with a bogus pointer) can (and usually will) cause a crash in a completely *different* part of the program (here, "sendto()". But just as easily "printf()", "malloc()" or just about any other standard library function).
