comment Does the use of debuggers have an effect on the efficiency of programmers?
@RonWarholic In order to know number of method executions you can use profiler it's easier than use print statement or the debugger. I use Netbeans profiler, it give also the execution time per method, memory use, heap, etc...

@JoelFan No, all learn by myself. I just know some basis like the tips in Garrett Hall answer.

@Maxood I learned that black box testing focus on the application from the user view, in order to make abstraction of code. So why use a debugger to realize black box tests? (I'm a developer more than a tester sry if the question is silly...)

Ofc, in my comment I was only speaking of time measurement that you took as example. I've understand well your opinion and I agrre!

@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen In other words it's mostly an intrinsic issue.

Yeah right! That often append, by the way I prefer use Netbeans Profiler for this kind of issue. I've noticed that step over lines time is not always significant.

Thanks for the answer. I don't always write my code debugging step by step ofc, but for complex algorithm (for example I made a cobol analyser in Java) I've use this method in order to access the hundreds of arrays that contains different kind of data. And also very often to test my long patterns :)
