    Subjectmalloc(1/0) ??
    hi,
    why does this program works. when executed, it doesnt
    give a segmentation fault. when the program requests
    memory, is a standard chunk is allocated irrespective
    of the what the user specifies. please explain.

    main()
    {
    char *s;
    s = (char*)malloc(0);
    strcpy(s,"fffff");
    printf("%s\n",s);
    }

    NOTE:
    i know its a 'C' problem. but i wanted to know how
    this works
