GDB is a coder's best friend (well after gcc and caffeine, of course).  
It's a debugger that will allow you to fix your coding mistakes much 
easier, and if you can't fix them, you're a lot more likely to get help 
if you can send GDB info to this list.  If you're on a unix-based system 
you may already have it (try typing gdb at your prompt).  You may have to 
ask the machine administrator for it.  If you''re running under windows 
you're probably better off using the debugger supplied with your 
compiling package, though there aren't as many people on this list who 
would be familiar with microsoft or borland debuggers.

GDB: Get it, love it, live it :)
