Best comment I've heard in a while:

"So what do write code in, (Microsoft) Word?"

    Speaking of which... Does anybody know a good text editor, a la word, to write documents that include portions of code? Sort of for small reports and shit

    @cobolplz Tbh I just use markdown for that these days. (Though I realise that may not exactly be what you're after.)

    @cobolplz I've heard a lot of good things about LaTeX but that's just another thing to learn (I don't know it myself)

    @infernalempress latex is great for big documents with lots of references - but less good for just throwing something together I find.

    @AlmondSauce What IDE do you use?

    @GyroGearloose For latex? A Windows package called texworks. Not the greatest I'm sure, but it's what I'm used to.

    As a general editor I tend to use VSCode, and if I'm doing Java stuff either Netbeans or Intellij.

    @cobolplz You can use Word for that, you just need to define a style for code specifically - Word allows you to do that just like it has already defined styles for titles, headings, body text and so on. Choose a monospace font, possibly also a different text and background colours and you're set. You can also copy-paste code from your IDE/editor and in some cases it will copy the colours too aside from the text itself.

    @AlmondSauce Latex seams a little hard to learn for simple docs...
    Thinking on learning markdown to create tutorials :D
