    Das Debuggen ist doppelt so schwer wie das Schreiben des Codes an erster Stelle. Wenn Sie also den Code so clever wie möglich schreiben, sind Sie per Definition nicht intelligent genug, um ihn zu debuggen.

    virheenkorjaus on kaksi kertaa vaikeampaa kuin koodin kirjoittaminen. Siksi, jos kirjoitat koodin niin taitavasti kuin mahdollista, et ole määritelmänsä mukaan riittävän fiksu vianmääritykseen.
