I am seeking a few tips in regards to debugging: I have been using Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition for the last few months but am not very comfortable with its debugging platform. I simply wish to step through a section of the program via breakpoints and view variable values; How can I set this to do so, show a variable's value-- a watch? At this point, I see no visible output regarding breakpoint findings.
I keep getting a reference to "ostream" and a display of its contents-- this is not helpful for me at this point (too much information, I believe) and I honestly cannot make much of the ostream coding. I am not sure why the compiler is doing this. There must be an important reason (I wish to understand this, too).
Thank-you in advance for any help.
