Summary

This chapter introduced you to many debugging techniques. If you’ve ever done any kind of troubleshooting, this chapter was not all new. Even though the focus was on applying such skills to fixing or preventing bugs in Flash, it’s not much different than fixing or preventing problems with your VCR. In any case, there are no hard-and-fast rules, but rather a general approach you must take.

Finding and documenting bugs is always the first step. You learned how to use the Debugger, but you must first know what you’re looking for before you can fix it. I suggested that you could try to develop personality attributes (such as cynicism and humility) that make finding or testing for bugs easier. Ultimately, you’ll develop skills that will reduce bugs in the first place. By writing quality assurance scripts and productivity scripts, you’ll be well on your way.
