Basically, the binary chop means

  1. Comment out the top half of the code

    Compile -- has the error gone away?

    1. Yes -- It is in the top half of the program.

      So now uncomment the second quarter. Did it come back?

      1. Yes. It is in that second quarter.

        Uncomment the first half and the 3rd eight of the code. Is it still there?

        1. Yes. ....
        2. No. ....
      2. No. It must be in the first quarter

        So uncomment the second eigth....

  2. No. So the error must be in the bottom half of the program.

    So uncomment the first half and comment out the 3rd quarter.

    Compile -- did the error go away?

    1. Yes, It's in the 3rd quarter.

      So uncomment the 6th eigth of the code.

      Compile -- did it come back?

      1. Yes ... Its in the 6th eigth.
      2. No ... Its in the 5th eight.
        1. No ... its in the 4th quarter....

      Damn! That was tedious to type. And probably equally tedious to read for anyone who already knows it, but... I typed it now so there:)
