Debugging: The Nine Indispensable Rules for Finding Even the Most Elusive Software and Hardware Problems
PDF | 2.44 MB | 192 pages | David J. Agans | ISBN: 0814471684

When the pressure is on to root out an elusive software or hardware glitch, what’s needed is a cool head courtesy of a set of rules guaranteed to work on any system, in any circumstance. Written in a frank but engaging style, Debugging provides simple, foolproof principles guaranteed to help find any bug quickly. This book makes those shelves of application-specific debugging books (on C++, Perl, Java, etc.) obsolete. It changes the way readers think about debugging, making those pesky problems suddenly much easier to find and fix.

Illustrating the rules with real-life bug-detection war stories, the book shows readers how to:

• Understand the system: how perceiving the “roadmap” can hasten your journey
• Quit thinking and look: when hands-on investigation can’t be avoided
• Isolate critical factors: why changing one element at a time can be an essential tool
• Keep an audit trail: how keeping a record of the debugging process can win the day
