i think it means that a pointer that has not been initialized but
trying to free it.
int * ptr1; /* Not referring to any memory space */
free(ptr1) /* freeing the pointer */
Ok, i also get segmentation faults, here the point comes up is i didnt
allocate enough memory to a variable but m trying to access the memory
which is not allocated.
var = 100;
