in thread Are debugging skills atrophying?

That's a good strategy when you're working on your own stuff, but I wager you'll need a bigger bag of tricks when working on a multi-100KLoc probject with over a dozen developers.

At some point in every project I've ever been on, there's a BUG that wasn't foreseen or caught by careful iterative development and testing. Then the fun begins.

    Agreed. Greater amounts of code require greater tools.

      Although I've been coding Perl (actually coding period) ,for only about 6 mos, I've already learned the value in coding in small snippets, as well as the use of print statements....(I throw them everywhere in cgi forms...etc), it helps me to see if what I think I have ....I have. But perl -d is still cryptic.....
