I'd like to add to this question and expand it:  can anyone point me to
a good resource on debugging *generally*?  Particularly using a debugger.
I have never learned any "right" way to debug my code, just sort of read 
off the errors generated and do what I can.  I use Boa Constructor, which 
has a built-in debugger, but I don't quite grok how best to use it (some of
that is lack of practice, some is lack of understanding), though I get the 
sense that they are more-or-less the same across IDEs.

I thought maybe there is an existing tutorial somewhere on how best to
make use of a debugger.
