In general? Not that I'm aware of. Learn to use your IDE for source level debugging. The big secret is to avoid making the most common mistakes up front. To learn that I suggest googling "most common programming errors" and following the links.

A few big sources of bugs:

  • not initializing variables
  • one-off (indexing) boundary errors
  • not validating inputs

Books by Niklaus Wirth and Donald Knuth are good for this. Not cheap, but worth having on hand - they all have places of honor on my book shelf.

I have read some source code from many books. Saying, yeah, that seems obvious. Until you type them in, there will allways be some small errors sneaking in. So my advice: read books and practice, practice
