in reply to Rambling about debuggers
I primarily use C#/Visual Studio for development these days and I do appreciate its debugger. I haven't noticed a big change in my development habits, though I am more likely to use the debugger now as opposed to tracing through my code mentally and/or using print statements to watch a variable. It's simply much faster to use the VS debugger. I only used Perl's debugger once or twice when I was really stumped on a problem and it was worth the time trying to figure out how to use it.
