9780130653949: Practical Debugging in C++

Appropriate as a supplementary text for any course teaching C++ programming or using C++ as a programming language in departments of Computer Science, Engineering, CIS, MIS, IT, and Continuing Education. Practical Debugging in C++ is the first debugging text written expressly for the beginning to intermediate level programmer. For the beginning programmer, it is a short, clear debugging guide that serves as a valuable companion to their introductory programming text when writing C++ programs. For the more advanced programmer, the guide provides a quick primer in C++ debugging with a series of examples of common syntax and semantic errors and how they can be detected and corrected. The authors cover both tracing and interactive debugger techniques.

From the Back Cover:

With this book, beginning programmers finally have a practical book on debugging techniques for C++. Practical Debugging in C++ serves as an important companion to any introductory textbook on C++ programming. Whether in the computer lab or at home, programmers should keep this book handy for quick reference when writing and debugging C++ programs.

The book includes chapters on:

  • common syntactic and semantic programming errors, with illustrative examples
  • tracing techniques using output statements (tout) in C++ programs, with examples illustrating how tracing can be easily inserted into your programs
  • application of tracing to more advanced C++ constructs such as strings, pointers, structs, and classes
  • use of the interactive debugger, with examples from Microsoft Visual C++ and Metrowerks CodeWarrior

Beginning programmers will want to use this book because it is easy and fast to read with many simple examples. It will save many frustrating hours of debugging time when the tracing and system debugger techniques illustrated in the text and figures are applied.

For the intermediate programmer, particularly those with some experience in other languages, this guide provides a quick up-to-speed primer in C++ debugging with a series of examples of common syntax and semantic errors and how they can be detected and corrected.

Instructors in introductory programming classes will want to recommend this book to their students because it will enable them to become much more self-sufficient, greatly reducing the time students will need for individual consultation regarding their programs.
