How do i code if i also want in the debug mode to skip
certain functions.  These functions are to be
processed during the Release setting only.

same way ... use the pre-processor with #ifdef _DEBUG/#else/#endif

You can make the release and debug versions as different as you want .. they could be completely different programs if you like .. but that may not help you much :-)
