"Why" is of course because Emacs is the best editor ever. Especially
for C and C++.

I can recommend the following lines for your .emacs:

  (global-set-key [f5] 'compile)
  (global-set-key [f6] 'first-error)
  (global-set-key [f7] 'previous-error)
  (global-set-key [f8] 'next-error)

Then press F5 to compile something and then press F6 to get to the
first compile error and F7/F8 to navigate between the following ones.
Very convenient. For debugging, there is 'M-x gdb' which is a little
bit weird to use, though.
