: My own debugging approach is heavily based on SLIME's ability to
: display function call backtraces and examining/inspecting stack
: frames.  I personally rarely use single-stepping and breakpoints.

But doesn't that require an exception or an error to break into the debugger?
If you are trying to track down a logic error, what approach can you use?
