The process of programming centers around the edit-compile-debug cycle. Central to this cycle is debugging, i.e. executing the user’s program in a controlled fashion. Debuggers let one set breakpoints, single-step the program, examine and set variables, and view the execution stack. Their user interface lets the programmer work in terms of the source while actually manipulating values and code at the machine level.
