I'm using Emacs as my IDE for years now.  It's not exactly what someone
who is used to windowing environments would call a "GUI IDE", but it can
do the following:

    - Edit the source code (with syntax highlighting if need be)
    - Compile (with the hit of a single key, once configured)
    - Parse compiler output and move to the file/line of an error,
      then to the next error, etc.
    - Interactively debug C, C++, Perl, Python, or LISP programs,
      line by line -- working as a "control program" for GNU gdb

and that's only a minor subset of the features it has.
