Abstract

Debugging is commonly understood as finding and fixing the cause of a problem. But what does "cause" mean? How can we find causes? How can we prove that a cause is a cause-or even "the" cause? This paper defines common terms in debugging, highlights the principal techniques, their capabilities and limitations.
