Dereferencing a null pointer

suggest change

This is an example of dereferencing a NULL pointer, causing undefined behavior.

int * pointer = NULL;
int value = *pointer; /* Dereferencing happens here */

A NULL pointer is guaranteed by the C standard to compare unequal to any pointer to a valid object, and dereferencing it invokes undefined behavior.
