I've never used Python's debugger in years of Python programming. Or are
you asking about C now? I think DDD supports Python debugging, though.
For Python work I use XEmacs. It has a very good python mode. I just don't
think Python's syntax is complex enough to need help from an IDE. For
library help I just keep a link on my browser toolbar to a local copy of
the Python html docs.
There are several good IDEs for C, but you should not use their existence as
an excuse for not learning how to write a Makefile.
