I used to use XEmacs much like John describes, although I did use the
debugging mode in XEmacs. That was long enough ago that lldb wasn't
around, at least not for what I was working on. Now I use XCode for
debugging and BBEdit for editing. They work together pretty well and
XCode's debugging GUI is quite nice. I remember debugging using address
stops and console switches, so this is a big step up.
