Professor Abhik concludes.
If a code is missing, how can you debug a software? Abhik asks and the crowd seems to be cluless.
the path of an input should be the same next time or it will be considered as a bug. and finding why it changed its behavior and reverting it back to normal way it was is debugging. – Abhik
Abhik now displays 2 identical pictures with minor differences and says this is the same scenario with program versions.
Professor Abhik also shares a few names about evolving programs which are used to develop and debug software’s.
Professor Abhik on stage explains theoretical methods of debugging.
so, what does jSlice does?
it hepls programmers to find software error-causes.
automated debugging and program compression.
Online Trace compression: is a new technical innivation which is beyond conventional string compression. Downside, full trace is never stored. – Abhik
Slicing makes use of information about a particular execution of a program. – Abhik
There are 2 main methods of debugging in which can be applicable still now.
Debugging in a economic aspect is as valuable as it is in a personal aspect.
What is missing? Command line tool for java. – Abhik
visual studio 6, are some of the apps which you can lean on to debug.
Abhik explains the difference between software debugging and bug hunting.
Software debugging is known as finding a needle in a haystack. – Abhik
Debugging is an Art.
Professor Abhik’s profile can be found here. http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~abhik/
Professor Abhik shows some Software Design Flow diagrams which at times can be helpful to programmers to abstract code and then debug software.
How to be able to read and understand a piece of code written by someone else, while debugging software’s? – Abhik
Professor Abhik is about to talk of ‘Software debugging as a Science’.
