First of all, there's a command-line debugger, gdb.  There are also
xxgdb and ddd (and maybe more), which are just X interfaces to gdb
(AFAIK, both xxgdb and ddd are available as Debian packages).  Don't
forget to install lib*-dbg (for simple programs, you'll need only
libc5-dbg or libc6-dbg) and compile with -g switch.  strip(1)ing an
executable or object file removes debugging symbold from it.

I think I gave you too much info,
