A Copernican Revolution in Debugging

A number of Copernican revolutions occurred or announced in various branches of various sciences. Now it’s my turn to say that action-based ”earth-centric” debugging is replaced by memory (dump) analysis as a “heliocentric” foundation of debugging. Because even in live debugging we have memory snapshots and differential memory analysis. Traces in trace-based debugging is another example of universal memory dumps. Therefore memory (dump) analysis comes first.
