The -g option used when compiling specifies that the modules should
be compiled with debugging information.  This option allows you to
determine where your program crashed if you get a core dump.  After
it happens, try typing   dbx circle  and then (if successful) type
  where  and it should tell you rather specifically where your
program crashed.  Also, although I haven't read it recently, I
believe one of the files in the docs directory talks a great deal
about system utilities you can use when you are having trouble
coding.  It would probably be worth your time to read what is
written there.
