Developing Programs in C The process for developing a program in C may not be obvious if you’ve never written a program before. It’s very similar to many other situations in life where it just isn’t clear how you’re going to achieve your objective when you first start out. Normally you begin with a rough idea of what you want to achieve, but you need to translate this into a more precise specification of what you want.

In general, though, the process of debugging usually involves using a debugger that inserts code temporarily for working out what happened when things go wrong. This includes breakpoints where execution pauses to allow you to inspect values in your code. You can also step through a program a statement at a time. If you don’t have a debugger, adding extra program code to produce output that will enable you to check what the sequence of events is and what intermediate values are produced when a program executes.

For more complex programs, you’ll need to look at many more aspects of what the program is going to do. A clear definition of the problem that your program is going to solve is an essential part of understanding the resources and effort that are going to be needed for the creation of a finished product. Considering these details also forces you to establish whether the project is actually feasible. A lack of precision and detail in the specifications for a new program has often resulted in a project taking much longer and costing much more than planned.
