Usefullness of Assertions in C
Since the assertion mechanism and Design-by-Contract are related concepts of self diagnosing software, I thought the above article might be of interest. It discusses some of the usefullness of assertions and how to exploit their power.

A follow on article this month discusses constructing a more powerful assertion macro to provide greater details.
