[Circle] CODE HELP: GDB and conversion of pfile

From: Argus (argus@argy.com)
Date: 08/04/96

where they are by looking at the core file.  But this one has me 
plagued.  I think it may be a pointer is not being used correctly 
someplce, but that is an educated guess (I got the same error once 
before because of the same reason but I knew where it was so I was 
able to correct it).  But in this case I don't even know where to 
start or if my "guess" is on the right track.  So if any of you gdb 
folx can help...  Here's the error but I don't know where it's from 
so I can't post code... I could post my compile warnings and errors 
if it would help.

Second:  I saw come across a short little snippet to convert an old 
pfile to a new one if I made changes to the pfile.  Can someone 
re-post it or send it to me??  I hate re-inventing the wheel and I 
didn't grab it the last time I saw it.  (and I looked on the ftp site 
but the archives of the mailing list seem a little out of date).

Thanx a million.
