    Using a Debugger

    Specifically, I'd like to learn how to use the debugger built into Dev C++. Debugging by my own means is becoming quite stressful.

    Have you tried the help files and the website for help first? They should get you started.Then come back with more specific questions once you have had a go.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Yeah the debugger that comes with dev-c++ is really simple to use. I'm sure I never needed to read any help manuals and I'm not as intelligent as most of the people on this board

    Practice using the debugger on a program you know works.

    Then add a bug to that program and then work out how you would find it using the debugger.

    Repeat for several more bugs until you get the idea.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
