Common issues that you need to be aware of

Compiler Warnings: Numerous potential bugs could be gotten by your compiler. Some such failures incorporate utilizing uninitialized variables, incidentally supplanting a check for correspondence with a chore in a restrictive, or, in C++, lapses identified with blending sorts, for example, pointers and ints.:

Printf Lies: Since I/O is generally cradled by the working framework, utilizing printfs as a part of your debugging methodology is unsafe. At the point when conceivable, utilize a debugger to evaluate what lines of code are the issue as opposed to narrowing in on the issue with code littered by printfs and cout. (Also be careful the stray printf that slips in throughout debugging and, ahem, slips into the last form.):

Flush Output: In any case, there are times when you really need to stay informed concerning some state in a log record -maybe you basically have an excessive amount of information that you have to gather, and you require the information from system start-up to the minute the bug happens. To guarantee you gather the greater part of the information, make sure to flush it: you can utilize fflush within C, or yield an endl in C++. fflush takes the FILE pointer you are composing into; for example, to flush stderr, you would compose fflush( stderr);:

Check Your Helper Functions: This ought to be self-evident, however it’s not difficult to overlook seemingly out of the blue: dependably confirm that your assistant capacities work, particularly when apparently straightforward code is falling flat. At the point when conceivable, seclude every assistant capacity and test it independently, then test each of its partner capacities. There’s nothing more baffling than understanding that your unique rationale was correct, yet your suspicion around an assistant capacity was not right.:

When Cause Doesn’t Immediately Lead to Effect: Regardless of the fact that an aide capacity doesn’t appear to be the prompt wellspring of an issue, its symptoms may cause idle issues. Case in point, in the event that you have an aide work that can return NULL and you pass its yield into a library capacity managing C-strings, you may see the prompt cause as dereferencing a NULL pointer in strcat, however the true reason was the surrey capacity you composed prior (or the way that you didn’t check for NULL in the wake of calling it).:

The Code May Be Used in More Than One Place: Alternate issues that can come up when debugging is that you uncover the issue has all the earmarks of being the aftereffect of a specific capacity call, set a break point inside that capacity, and afterward find that there are many calls to the same capacity all through the code. Then again more regrettable, you don’t perceive this until squandering hours of time attempting to evaluate what’s going on or feeling that the explanation behind the issue is that the capacity is, no doubt called inaccurately.:

The clearest result is to check the call stack in the wake of hitting a break indicates or set the breakpoint right before the call that is really the issue. Sadly, this doesn’t generally help if the same call works many times however falls flat on the 1001st call. Potential results incorporate tallying the amount of calls to a capacity and afterward going through that numerous breakpoints set inside the capacity, or utilizing a static variable as a counter.:
