Even that might not be necessary if your program has enough visible
indications of its progress that you can intuit where it is going wrong
simply by watching what happens and using your brain.

Such "debugging by thinking", however, works best when the program design is already
somewhat suckless. The more complicated your design (and the more it
relies on an underlying third-party software stack) the more difficult
debugging it is going to be.
