in thread How to debug unknown dynamic code?

We definitely did read it differently. I was explicitly saying that I don't use the debugger for debugging, and in response to that tye answered saying that he thought that people don't use it because of not wanting to take time to learn to use the debugger. He went on to tell me to use one the next time I need to debug. Despite the fact that I am saying that my not using one is intentional.

I read that as his not paying attention to what I said (the fact that I am making an intentional choice) and assuming that if I am exposed to the joys of debuggers then I (being a presumably sane human being) will convert.

That is what I reacted to, and I don't think that I reacted particularly unreasonably to it.

    Oh, sorry about some of that. I was more responding to the thread and the "you"s should have been "one"s as I was addressing all of the readers and not you specifically.
