Writing Debuggable Code

Tips and tricks for writing debuggable, maintainable software

Summary:

A summer intern asked for my help learning to program in C. I thought that it would be worthwhile to write a quick missive explaining some of the tips and tricks that I've learned over the past 20 years that I've been attempting to bend computers to my will. This missive will not attend to the whole software engineering process. It will concentrate on tips and techniques to use during the "implementation" phase, while the code is actually being written.
