A "memory fault" is usually the same thing as a "segment violation".
It is almost always a bug in someone's software. Hope this helps.

What exactly is a memory fault (Follows "What is signal 7?")

Usually, when you get the message: "<something...>": core dumped,
you can associate the "<something...>" with one of the signals (gleaned
either from reading signal.h, or from "kill -l".

However, I cannot find the signal analog of "memory fault" (on an HP/UX system)

Is there one?  Also, can anyone tell me what a memory fault is?  Is it a
hardware problem or a software problem?  Or, could it be either?

1. Type "(", ")" and "{", "}" in X...

Hi,

When i start a shell under X, i can type all characters on my keyboard,
the same when i start the simple editor, but when i start Forte (Java
IDE) written in Java i cant use the "(", ")", "{", "}" and allmost none
of the characters that are located on the same key as a number...

Does anybody have an idea what i can do about that... could it be
something with programs written in Java..?

Mvg,
Erwin
