It Compiled or It Ran != IT IS CORRECT

Just because a program compiled(maybe with warnings or without warnings) or ran even once or an awesome number of times correctly, does not mean that the program that is written is correct.

Many events may have conspired against you to reach this conclusion, but then a slight change in any item makes it fail.
A common programmer’s reaction is: “But it was working last time and many times! This is wrong! The compiler is wrong! The OS is faulty!”.

But the problem is usually right where you think it would be, in your code. Get to work and debug it before you blame those other components.
