1.10) How should I debug and test my software? (Mac Programming)

Get ahold of, and install, the extensions DoubleTrouble,
DisposeResource and EvenBetterBusError. They will catch 80% of any

"leaks" dcmd which will help you catch memory leaks in your application.
All of these tools are available from <ftp.apple.com>.
