- The process of finding and resolving of defects that prevent correct operation of computer software or a system.
Debugging is the process of finding and removing glitches and bugs in a process or library. For this people use programs called debuggers. The debugger (as in a person who is debugging) can place breakpoints to check or change the values of variables. Some known tools are OllyDbg and SoftICE. Some IDE's come with a debugger as well, such as Borland's Delphi 7 and Microsoft Visual Studio. Cheat Engine has a debugger as well, which is, unlike others, not based on OllyDBG's debugger.
