Here the computer find the errors.
Although the mass of information produced may ultimately lead to success more frequently leads to wasted effort of time.

It is a fairly common debugging approach.
Beginning at the site where a symptom has been uncovered the source code is tracked backward until the cause is found.

Cause elimination:

It is a fairly common debugging approach.ØBeginning at the site where a symptom has been uncovered the source code is tracked backward until the cause is found.

Automated Debugging:

It is a fairly common debugging approach.
Beginning at the site where a symptom has been uncovered the source code is tracked backward until the cause is found.
