I love how my University CSSE courses make it hard for Windows users.
Student: Is it possible use VALGRIND in Windows CMD?
prof: I don't know, I only use Linux command line. Next question.

All programs must compile and run on Linux using g++. So everyone using windows has strip the IDE bloat and transfer the project files over to the remote Linux lab every single time they compile and run.

Benefits of being a Linux user!

    Orly? WSL runs GCC no problem, AND it can be used from within Windows IDEs. Now, your prof could either tell that and introduce everyone to Linux in a nice way, or be all "I'm too cool to give a shit about anything outside my scope of interest", and promote the stereotype that Linux users are dickheads who like to make your life hard. Way to go...

    @hitko yeah they have no sympathy. The department as a standard grades using Linux. They taught us how to transfer the files to the school Linux server but that's about it.

    Pretty sure valgrind exists in some form for Windows. Although if you're doing that kind of shit they're might be some differences between visual C and gnu c that will fuck you over. But there's always WSL, as mentioned, so there.
