Hi there,
Can somebody out there tell me what ''Segmentation fault"means?
I'm dealing with squeezing mesh and the displacement of each cell is calculated(volscalarfield) and when I display the result with parafoam it comes out with this error message!!
Best Regards
Thanks in advance!!

A segmentation fault is generally associated with a memory error. You may have run out of memory, or you may be trying to access a location in memory that doesn't contain what you need. I normally get them when I mix up my 32-bit and 64-bit executables when reading in large data sets.

Thank you so much for answering me,nice of you.I'm actually trying to handle an automatic mesh motion(squeezing mesh) and I came out with this error.
Did you happen to deal with it?I don't have much experience.
The displacement of each cell is calculated(pointscalarfield)and loaded into the pointdisplacement file.Woul be so kind as to give me a hand?I can't get at it!totally stuck!

Thank you in advance!
