You know, right now I kind of wish there was a machine that would walk through every step of the code I was writing and show me, visually, what was going where and what was causing what.

I'm sure many of us would appreciate this!

There is. In fact, you've got one.

An invisibility cloak, it's not a machine, but I think it would be pretty cool.

I really wonder if your friend was thinking of the same thing I was thinking of.

Iunno, he just told me about being able to "step through" with the debugger instead of just letting it run D: That already helps clear up a lot of things

Sigh. You have a much more effective tool for this. It's the most powerful computer you'll ever use.

Step-through debuggers are cute, but your brain works much, much better.

If I could trust my brain to handle anything beyond keeping me alive I might have been using that more often, not wishing for a "machine". :dontgetit:

Unfortunately it still has trouble working in straight lines, so going down and reading what I've got feels a lot like following the path of a tangled clump of yarn (for the record I have miniscule, almost unmentionable experience in coding). I understand that this is something I can get better at, and I probably will, but when I end up dizzy from all the lines I'll probably fall back on the debugger. :dozingoff: Great positive thinking though!
