Although it is theoretically possible for a program to be bug-free, chances are good that any nontrivial program contains bugs. Actually, in some testing strategies it’s an axiom that the program contains bugs. The goal is not to fix every bug but to fix so many of the bugs that those that remain occur extremely rarely.
