What is a bus error?

From Wikipedia:

In computing, a bus error is generally an attempt to access memory that the CPU cannot physically address. Bus errors can also be caused by any general device fault that the computer detects. A bus error rarely means that computer hardware is physically broken - it is normally caused by a bug in a program's source code.

Bus error is a common error when learning C in MacOS, it appears in the same situations as Segmentation fault in Unix systems.
