CS50 IDE Debugging

Text Editor Debugging

Fix syntax errors as they appear. Don't write lines and lines of code without testing to see if your program works. It will cost you more time in the long run.

Example 1

Cloud9 detects a syntax error on the same line as the syntax error.

Example 2

Cloud9 detects a syntax error as the line after the syntax error.

Terminal Debugging

Similarly, if run the file in the Terminal, Python will give you a similar error message. Remember, the error is on that line or the previous line.
