Segmentation fault


I am learning C. I got segmentation fault when I ran the below program.

[root@localhost ~]# more segmentationfault.c
int main()
char *mystr="Hi";
strcpy(mystr,"new value") ;
return 0;

[root@localhost ~]# ./a.out
Segmentation fault
[root@localhost ~]#

Could you please tell me the ways to debug the segmentation fault errors.
