Write unit tests and use coverage to aim for 100% code and branch coverage.

If you want to write high quality code and avoid problems like misnamed
variables then you have to write unit tests and functional tests for
your program. I'm well aware that it's hard and requires time. But in
the long run it will *save* lots of time.
