Maybe you’re ready, after all these years, to become a Finder, not a Loser.
This chapter explains the methods of the master of finding lost things, Professor Solomon, and how they can be applied to debugging software. Professor Solomon’s work purports to be nonfiction, so the treatment is different from that of Holmes and Wimsey. Part of Professor Solomon’s work contains twelve principles for finding lost things. This chapter applies those principles to finding the causes of bugs.
