comment Is a logical error always caused by the line of code for the earliest program state which is wrong?
@Erik: a logical error allows a program to run and exit normally (contrary to fatal runtime error), but the program doesn't do what it is supposed to do. When checking if a program state is correct or wrong, if the state is intended (the values of all objects in all frames are as intended at that point of program execution), then it is correct, and if not, it is wrong.

I thought BIOS means the firmware, i.e. the code/program?

Thanks. I thought BIOS is run before booting the OS, and when OS is fully booted, BIOS is no longer running

comment Do bare computer systems (without OS installed) use (executable) files?
@Robert: what are the file formats for those executable files? Do ELF and other formats for executable files still make sense?
