    Hey guys iv passed int daysOfMonth[] = {31,28,31,30,31,30,31,31,30,31,30,31}; into the totalDays function but when i run it i get segmentation fault for some reason?

    Am i passing the array properly from each function?

    The main cause of the segmentation fault could be you are using a varibale without having been initiliazed or you are deleting a variable which is already deleted.

    One other reason could be accessing non existent array element.

    But you may be accessing the index of an array which may not exist.
