Abstract

Even experienced programmers create bugs—coding errors that take time to correct. Syntax has to be precisely correct and programming is a complicated task. Computers do exactly what the program says; they are unforgiving. Fortunately, there are tools for locating, understanding, and handling coding errors. Integrated Developments Environments (IDEs), such as PythonWin, have syntax checking and debugging tools. The arcpy package has functions for gathering information about errors and the Python language itself has functions and keywords for handling errors gracefully. This chapter covers error debugging and related topics. The three types of programming errors are: syntax errors, exceptions, and logic errors.

Keywords

  • Output Table
  • Logic Error
  • Buffer Distance
  • Print Statement
  • Syntax Rule

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
