Consider the following $\text{ANSI C}$ program: #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> struct Node{ int value; struct Node *next;}; int main( ) { struct Node *boxE, *head, *boxN; int index=0; boxE=head= (struct Node *) malloc(sizeof(struct Node)) ... $\textsf{return}$ which will be reported as an error by the compiler It dereferences an uninitialized pointer that may result in a run-time error
