I am learning C so humor me. I have a simple script but everytime I run it I
get a segmentation fault. Any ideas?

#include <shapefil.h>

int main (void)
    const char * shapefile =
    SHPHandle handle;
    int entities;
    int type;
    double minbound;
    double maxbound;

    printf("%s\n", shapefile);

    handle = SHPOpen(shapefile,"rb");
    SHPGetInfo( handle,&entities,&type,&minbound,&maxbound);

    return 0;
