More options in its formatting preferences, e.g. always put a SPACE before a semi-colon, don't put a SPACE before empty braces, brackets, or parentheses.

I do a lot of my development at the command line and I create files for my library in a hierarchy. I do use Visual Studio when I have to Dead | X| and I have a Library project that is supposed to include all the files in the hierarchy, but of course it's often missing the latest files. Finding and adding such orphan files within VS is tedious. I have written a utility to try to add them to the project file, but I forget to use it and there's always the fear that it will corrupt the project file. I would like VS to be able to find and add orphan files.

The ability to build and run (and debug) a simple console app without requiring solution and project files Dead | X| -- like Turbo languages and Quincy*. A year ago I finally got around to writing a simple editor that will do that (except for the debugging part); I have it configured for C, C#, and VB.net.

Trim trailing whitespace on save and load (my editor does this too).


* I assume Quincy[^] still doesn't require project files, but I haven't used it since last millenium. Hmmm... same with Turbo... Unsure | :~
