I want to be able to switch my code easily into "debug mode". I guess you normally put things like this into your code:

 

....

....

 

#ifdef DEBUG_MODE
    //some error-checking
#endif
....
.....
 
...but do I need a new header with "#define DEBUG MODE" and include it in almost every CPP file or is there some trick, a hint to the compiler or something?
Thanks!

If you're using Visual Studio, then go to the project properties and modify the preprocessor definitions field in the C/C++ folder. Be sure only the "Debug" configuration is set.

AFAIK, there's already a widely-accepted define "NDEBUG" that is set when optimizations are configured for the build (i.e., not-debug mode).
