Coders Codex::Best Online Compiler for C++11 Programming

INTRODUCTION

This article briefly discusses Coding Ground from Tutorialspoint for which I feel is one of the best online compilers for C++11 Programming. An online text editor and compiler offers good opportunity to try out C++11 without needing to setup a compiler or IDE on your local computer, so this is great for going through tutorials and sharing snippets of code online.

DISCUSSION

The IDE features a syntax highlighted text editor which I find to be pleasant and clean to look at. I also like the code-collapse tooltips at the side of the window, allowing the close inspection of code which needs attention. Sadly though, it does not have anything like intellisense, code completion or basic debugging tools. I think it would be nice to see in an update some basic code autocomplete and some break points, step-through, step into and continue debugging features.

FINDINGS

The ability to import GitHub projects looks like a nifty feature however I have yet to try this out. The Bash terminal at the bottom of the window in addition to compiling with gcc allows for the use of makefiles and with make and vi to edit. I am sure a few other features are available although these are out of scope for this article. A quick launch sidebar allows the quick reference to C++ Tutorials which open in a separate tab, all good stuff.
