A software debugger is a last resort, for really tough bugs and really tired brains.


On the contrary! I run the debugger on 90% of the code I write, single stepping through each line to make sure I did it right. Of course I only do that once (unless there's a bug) but given the complexity of LINQ, lambda expressions, closures, and so forth, I find it well worth the effort.

I suppose unit testing could take the place of that, but then I'd have to single step through the unit test to make sure I'd written the test right! Laugh | :laugh:

Which I actually do when I write unit tests.
