Cool. That could be pretty useful in certain circumstances. Especially for people who want to help other people with their code, or test algorithms, and don't have immediate access to a proper development environment (maybe they are on the road or visiting a friend or using a cell-phone). _________________ Between depriving a man of one hour from his life and depriving him of his life there exists only a difference of degree. --Muad'Dib

It won't replace a normal local compiler/debugger.
I tried it yesterday but only superficially with C++
I does not seem to be able to handle a situation where the program needs to suspend while it receives user input. e.g.
using namespace std;
cout << "What is your name" << endl;
cout << "Welcome " << name << endl;
cout << "You're an impostor" << endl;
The program will not pause at the getline statement so that the user can input his name. The output at the server is broken simply because because it has never received it. _________________ Life is too short to spend it in front of a computer
