thanks for your attention.

When I try to call my new system call, it always returns -1. I then check the error message using perror( ). The error message is always "Bad Address".

Could anybody please tell me what can cause a system call to return "Bad Address" error. All my variables are initialized and defined.

Thanks in advance for any insights from you.
