    I know of two. One is my brain (like many other programmers out there) the other is my compiler--more importantly my compiler not compiling broken code. Unless you mean there is an actual bug in the way your code works cuz then you are stuck with your brain. But debuggers can usually help. I'd recommend the Insight debugger. It is a visual version of GDB. It is also a good idea to have GDB (I think you have it). On Dev-C++ you can go to the compiler options and turn on the debug option.

    If you don't have the Insight debugger I think it can be found on cygwin's site. And on a side not Insight doesn't require cygwin.

    <edit>I think bloodshed's site has a links to both debuggers</edit>

    there is a program called lint that does that kind of thing. it originally worked with C code, but i'm sure there's a C++ version somewhere.

    I would just like to point out that this was written by Klinerr1 and it only has four spelling/grammatical errors. It's snowing somewhere

    witch -> which
    cuase -> cause
    i -> I
    yes -> Yes,
