    Hi, I am new to C and so can not figure out the source of error I am getting. I have a program that calls a second program and passes an argument to it. When I try to assign the argument to a variable in the second program, I get a "Floating Error" error message. The program being called (named child, edited to remove peripheral stuff):

    main(int argc, char *argv[])
      pid_t pid; int ret_value, T, sleeptime;
       T = atoi(argv[1]);
       pid = getpid(); 
       ret_value = (int) (pid %256);  
       sleeptime = rand()%T; 
    And the calling function:

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
       pid_t pid, w; int k, status, T, N; char value[2];
       // get command line arguments
       T = atoi(argv[1]);
      execl("child", "child", value, (char *) 0); 
    Any help you can give me would be very appreciated...thanks!
