in reply to
print or die?
So, how important is checking print statements? I assume it would depend on the application and/or system. Once in a blue moon, one of the cluster environments that I use has funny file writing issues (which err on the side of not writing), so it is something I worry about.
well, if user quotas and harddisk free space aren't monitored routinely (like hourly or daily or weekly)
then checking print statements becomes more important
