Tue 02 Feb 2016 10:37:13 PM UTC, original submission:  
  • Expected result: program handles invalid parameters
  • Actual Result: program crashes with segfault

*Steps to reproduce:
 1) Run program with a flag that takes another argument, but
    do not supply the argument. ex:
      ./gnukart -w
      ./gnukart -h
 2) Program segfaults

  • Steps to fix:

  1) Update main.c function parse_args()
    - all conditionals currently attempt to check for
      invalid num args by evaluating the statement
      if (argc < i + 1)
    - they should check to see if (argc <= i + 1)
  2) Segfault error is fixed
