Believe it or not, on average programmers spend 70% of their working time in debugging (I don't know where this number is from but I do believe so). A good debug tool, command or even habit will definitely improve your work efficiency, shorten working hour, and enjoy more the world cup. When it comes to Matlab and R, I have to say the debugging in Matlab is straightforward but is more comprehensive in R. Here is an introductory video demonstrating how to debug and understand Matlab codes:

Also a very good PDF document for debugging in R with detailed examples at http://www.biostat.jhsph.edu/~rpeng/docs/R-debug-tools.pdf. Enjoy.
