While searching for information about submarines for one of my sons, I ran across several really good articles on the Wikipedia. If you don't know what the Wikipedia is, take a look http://en.wikipedia.org. It's basically a free encyclopedia continually being updated by ... well, anyone and everyone... including me.
Though I had heard about the wiki and the wikipedia, I had yet to peruse it for any length of time. Much to my dismay, though the Visual Studio IDE had it's own page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Visual_Studio), almost nothing was posted concerning what I obviously consider its most important and powerful feature -- the debugger. To that end, I made some initial posts about it and its predecessor, CodeView.
Please feel free to take a look and edit-away to set me straight on details or other interesting info I may have easily missed. I'm especially concerned about the timing of the release of a debugger that was integrated with the editor rather than being standalone. You old-timers out there may have a better memory than me. See and edit it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_Studio_Debugger.
