Use `c' to `c'ut to the `c'hase, skipping directly to the result of an

Use `d' to `d'ig through an evaluation step by step.

Remember the `C-h m' is your friend in nearly any buffer.

[Ken's reply about "instrumenting" was no doubt about using `edebug'.  I take it
that you are instead using `debug' (which is what I use, FWIW).  IOW, I assume
you're either calling `(debug)' in your code or doing `M-x debug-on-entry' or
