Currently, program slicing and algorithmic debugging are two of the most relevant debugging techniques for declarative languages. They help programmers to find bugs in a semiautomatic manner. On the one hand, program slicing is a technique to extract those program fragments that (potentially) affect the values computed at some point of interest. On the other hand, algorithmic debugging is able to locate a bug by automatically generating a series of questions and processing the programmer's answers. In this work, we show for functional languages how the combination of both techniques produces a more powerful debugging schema that reduces the number of questions that programmers must answer to locate a bug.
