Hi all:
 
I encounter a segmentation fault probelm. When I use
"gdb core", gdb shows that the program stops at the
following line of my code:
sprintf(pt_->buffer() + offset,
 
I think that line cause segmentation fault. 
I want to set a breakpoint at that line and run the
code to see what happens before segmetation fault. How
can I make the program stop right before segmentation
fault happens? 
I also attach some information from gdb. 
 
Thanks a lot.
 
John
