Kylix comes to mind, which is the unix version of Delphi for windows. Both 
development packages do have an almost identical integrated cross-platform 
development environment including very extensive debugging.

There is even a basic version of Kylix available for free download. I 
personally use Kylix professional. I have to say that it is pretty good stuff 
for unix based systems. I run it under OpenLinux 3.1.1 and kde.

Kylix uses the pascal language and does all the kind of checking you 
requested including boundary checks. It also is said to have one of the 
worlds fastest compilers if not the fastest.

Have a look at http://www.borland.com/kylix which could you get going if you 
are interested.
