What you'll learn:
- At the end of this course students will be able to create clear, readable programs that make debugging much easier
- At the end of this course students will be able to use GDB to locate and fix errors in C programs.
- At the end of this course students will be able to use Eclipse to locate and fix errors in Java programs
This course will begin by discussing how you can make clear, concise programs to make the process of debugging much easier. Then we will cover how you can use the debugging tool GDB to debug C programs from the terminal and give you the opportunity to practice your new skills with five practical exercises. In the final section we will investigate how we can use the debugging tools available within the Eclipse IDE to fix broken Java programs and like the previous section there will be five practical exercises.
