("How to Fix this Code" is set to the music of "How Far I'll Go", original music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda from the Disney film Moana. Alternate lyrics are by Steven Wolfman, Patrick Virtue, and Rachel Pottinger.)
I've been staring at this bug in my program Long as I can remember, never really knowing why I wish I had started with my test suite But I thought I could be so l33t, and now it doesn't even compile Every tweak I make, every pointless hack Every point I break, every issue tracked Leads me back again, to this exception4.5 That I cannot beat Here's the line where the runtime tells me it's faulty And I don't know how to fix this code Trace the stack and go back to the lines I wrote blindly Can I fix this code? If I show the local variables I might know. I know every function in this program has a role in this program Everything is by design I know every function in this program meets its spec in this program but the bugs are unspecified I ran gdb. I can try valgrind. There's no memory leak. None that I can find. But I read this value that's undefined That's assigned right here Eerie Heisenbug hides when I seek—like it mind reads— In threads transposed by my repros And it seems like it's calling out to me so come find me! Review this code: What if these two lines had been synchronized Here's the line where the runtime tells me it's faulty I think I know how to fix this code I just needed a monitor to keep these from fighting Now I know How to fix this code!
