I downloaded libyahoo2 and I'm trying to login but get a segmentation fault when the yahoo_login() function is called. Here's the code I'm using:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <liblyahoo2/yahoo2.h>
#include <libyahoo2/yahoo2_callbacks.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
    int id;

    id = yahoo_init(argv[1], argv[2]);
    yahoo_login(id, 0);  //this is where I get the seg fault

    return 0;

I've been all over google and haven't found a solution

What are the command line arguments? Are you sure there are two of them, "Username" and "password". A null for either will cause a crash, you should check in the code for either argv[1] or argv[2] being null before using them to protect against bad command line invocation.

yes, there's only two args to yahoo_init(username, password). I've even tried using a call like:
yahoo_init("username", "password");

What is prototype of yahoo_login() function?
doughyi8u 12-Oct-12 22:54pm    
yahoo_login(int id, ENUMERATION_TYPE);

where id is the return value of init_yahoo("username", "password") and ENUMERATION TYPE is a value called from enum yahoo_status. 0 is AVAILABLE and should work according to

What is the value of id on return from yahoo_init()?
