Oh how I concur - actually, I was quite shocked to hear this coming from you, merlyn - no particular reason.

When I was studying CS in college, I was a lab assistant. I learned very quickly to code in small chunks - and save often - revision control was also a big plus.

I learned this, but most of the first and second year CS majors refused to work in this manner. It was a shame to watch them type about 100 lines of code, try to compile it, and then ask me to help figure out what these 200 lines of errors meant.

To tell the truth, the only debugger I found helpfull is the one that is available for Visual Basic.
