Hi guys,

When I compile and link my code on my gentoo box everything works fine and the program runs fine.
At work I have a ubuntu box and I need to run the same code, when I compile and link it everything seems fine; however, when I start it I get a segmentation fault. I use gfortran and upon checking with gdb I get:

(gdb) bt
#0 0xb7d94b6a in memcpy () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
#1 0xb7f4a653 in *_gfortrani_write_a (dtp=0xbf98d558, f=0x9f6f59c,

#7 0xb7d32685 in __libc_start_main () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6
#8 0x08048701 in _start ()

Any idea on how I can fix this? Maybe something wrong with libc? By the way, I couldnt figure out how to include libc symbols for debuging in ubuntu.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Here is what I found after further debugging.

I simplified the problem and I found:
1) The problem occurs only when out.txt is new (i.e. not there)
2) The problem disappears when I uncomment the second "rewind(7)"
3) The problem disappears if I remove "1x," from the format at 20

What basic mistake am I making?

Here is the code:

program simple
character*8 strngw,strngr

read(7,20,end=10) strngr
10 continue
c rewind(7)
write(7,20) strngw
20 format(1x,a5)
end program simple
