Zen of Computer Programming

Recently I was talking with one of my students from
Macromedia FreeHand/Adobe Photoshop classes:
and he asked me if the following was true:
"The best computer programmers could create a
flawless program without the need to run this
program in a computer."
Well, (I said him), I read about a software developer
named Bruno Delean who created his software namde
"Live Picture" in this way... but it's not common.
"Live Picture's extraordinary performance is achieved by virtue of a
radical new concept/technology called FITS
(Functional Interpolating Transformation System), which was developed
by Bruno Delean of Toulouse, France-based FITS Imaging.
Legend has it that Delean wrote all of the FITS code by hand during a
five-year sojourn in the French Alps, praticing a sort of Zen development.
He's since come down from the mountain with a truly unique program."
My question to all of you is,
How many developers you know that could create almost flawless
programs without running and debugging?
What is their special gift?
Thanks in advance!
