History of code debugging
Early in the ’90s a guy was coding on a computer and suddenly a moth was trapped in the computer and this guy tried to run the code but shitty code didn’t run. It’s because of the moth and he takes the moth out also he wrote a report on this because if his boos say hey find another good lie.
Take a look at the below pic written by the person, and also below is a link to the history of debugging in detail ????????

Below are few codes, just copy them into a compiler or IDE and debug the codes all the best ????
Let’s see where are the errors
Hope you found the error and now, let’s debug them using any IDE or compiler I am using repl.it
The result will be without any error like this ????????
So, be careful while coding everyone makes mistakes and don’t worry that we have got the debuggers.
