Personally, I use vim, and use :make to build the code.  Vim knows about
gcc errors, so it takes you to the line that the error was reported on.
You can run your compiled program from inside vim, too.

As for singlestepping source, use the cursor keys :)  Seriously, ddd is
an awesome debugger, it's based arouns gdb, but has a clicky interface
