So I am using Sublime Text in Linux as my CP Environment. But I've always wondered whether it was possible to use terminal features (like timeout and -head) in Windows in the same way. I tried hard with CMD but it was too weak to do these. So I tried with Powershell. It was a long journey and after spending many hours I finally got it to do exactly what I wanted. I'll just copy paste the features of this build here.
Features of this build:
- Uses File I/O.
- Has a timeout feature, terminates process after hitting timeout.
- Has an output size limit, terminates program when the output generated is out of control.
- Terminates immediately after a runtime error occurs. (Normally Windows takes a lot longer)
- Easily customizable.
As far as I've tested this build felt very consistent. I also did the last Round #677 Div3 with this and I really didn't feel like I was using windows instead of linux. I know it's not a big deal, but if anyone ever wanted to have things like these and didn't find any other solution, you might want to have a go at this.
