Ok, let me see if I can explain myself without digging a hole.

Sure! debugging and logging are the Yin and Yang of software diagnosis.

I guess I was distinguishing the two using interactivity as criteria. In terms of interactivity, I would consider debugging and logging as separate. Debugging allows a developer to interrogate and modify variables during runtime. Logging, on the other hand, is the passive collection of what has happened during runtime.

I once had a Tool Vendor argue with me that logging was inappropriate for software development. His argument was that it was never introduced as a topic of discussion in college.

Hazah! I'm Employed!
