It is a question of definition of what is debugging. If it includes the
prevention thing then "Perl Debugged" is an excellent book. It covers
a lot of aspects of "making your code bug free".
On the other hand if we define "debugging" as the thing you do *after* you
wrote the code then ......
... the book of Richard Foley will be a good book to look for.
... this is what I am looking for. Techniques to find bugs once we know
there *is* a bug because e.g. a test fails.
