It is a multistep process that involves identifying a problem, isolating the source of the problem, and then correcting the problem. If the problem cannot be solved then determining a way to work around it may be the next option.
Several tools such as IDEs, code editors, A debugger or debugging tool is a computer software application that is used to test and debug other programs. The software tool is used to track and pinpoint the source of bugs, bottlenecks, and other potential issues within the program being tested.... More, and more are used in the debugging process.
