The publisher, John Wiley & Sons:
Debuggers are tools to help remove bugs from software. Virtually all
programmers and software developers are utilizing debuggers, but few
know how to interpret the results they obtain from them. Using a hands-
on, problem-solving approach, this unique reference explains how
debuggers work, why programmers use them, and then discusses the
algorithms involved in the debugging process.
