VS Code is really useful, especially without any of the addins. I use it as an editor for C/C++, C#, Java, Javscript, PHP and Python. I use simple batch files in the terminal Window of VS Code to build and run the samples.
yeha <3 LINQPad, we got the Premium License. isnt that expensive compared to other tools or 3rd party components. And realy usefull..
I use it kinda every day, trying some simple stuff I'm not 100% sure how it works, testing some new things without creating that usual console application and .Dump() to view anything on the fly
But surely you'll have VS installed anyway? I don't see the issue? Like others have said though, in terms of "quick" I'll use console apps, especially if trying to develop an algorithm or something. If even that is too much for me, some days I'll just copy and paste my task onto a web forum and ask someone else to give the codes.
An InteractiveFunction requires user input so it runs in the primary thread. A StandardFunction does not require input and is run in a worker thread context. I've been using this for several years now and it's pretty handy. I occasionally prune things back because the menu gets too full of testing snippets, several of which originated from questions here.

'MyProgs' program directory contains all of my own programming work on my computer. (It is a sub of 'Programs', which contains all the programming work on my computer.) It has a 'Junk' folder which contains a few different types of bare-bones projects (console, Windows, etc.), that can have the code added to them to play with. I just open the appropriate one in a new Visual Studio session and start playing with the code. If it is a complete program like comes with many of the articles here, it gets tossed into a sub off of 'Programs\Others Programs', extracted, and ran as-is.
Just use the REPL if the language has one, VSCode + compiler in the Code's integrated terminal if the language doesn't have one. That covers the main languages I might want to play with (Haskell, Python, OCaml, C++ or Rust in my case).
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
I am glad I am not the only one. I have a semi console app.
I call it something like sortingmultidemi because the first time I used it was like 30 years ago and I was sorting a mutli dimensional array and I wanted to see the outcome.
It now has more commented code than working code. but I take it everywhere. Copy Paste alot out of it. Lots of examples of things. and for some reason quicker than google when searching for something I have done before.
To err is human to really mess up you need a computer
