Bug 的由來


1945 年 9 月 9 日,發生了一樁對電腦界而言非常重要的軼事。那天因為天氣很熱,他們都把窗戶給打開了,然後飛進來一隻蛾,結果那隻蛾被打死在一支繼電器裡面,造成電路不通,讓機器當機,使他們沒辦法算出他們要的結果。經過了近一天的檢查,Hopper 找到了那隻蛾,她用她的髮夾去把那隻蛾給弄出來,還把那隻蛾的屍體貼在她的管理日誌上,上面寫著:「就是這個 bug,害我們今天的工作無法完成。」這個消息傳開之後,那個實驗室裡的人每逢老闆詢問為何還沒做出結果時,都把過錯推給 bug。爾後,在電腦界中,遇到程式中有錯,就稱之為 bug。除錯叫做 debug。下面這張照片,就是當時的那隻蛾,以及 Hopper 寫的記錄。
