Hi Paul,

1 - Have you introduced any tools for debugging in the book?
2 - How you define the complexity of debugging in different type of projects?

Thanks,

Vijitha,

Although the book is not primarily tools-focussed, I certainly do discuss many different debugging tools. And there is a 10-page long appendix containing pointers to many tools that are useful during debugging.

I'm not sure that I understand your question about complexity of debugging in different types of projects. Certainly some kinds of software are harder to debug than others (multi-threaded software, for example, can be particularly challenging), but I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're asking?

Thanks for the answer Paul. I meant any special considerations to be made/any tips when debugging different kinds of applications (like multi-threaded, desktop applications, web applications etc..)?

Ah, got you.

Yes, there is specific mention of debugging issues that are specific to multithreaded-, networked- and embedded software. But I think that you might be surprised at how little difference there is in the basic approaches that are applicable to debugging different classes of software. The specific tools are different of course, but that's a mere detail.

Updated subject to be more specific than "question"
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
