### Crosspiece's blog

Good night / dawn / morning / day / sunset / evening / night Codeforces! The other day, it became interesting how you can speed up the writing of codes using the definition and all sorts of useful functions in C ++ to increase your performance during contests, who can advise what?

And it is also interesting on which program is best to write (for example Codeblocks, VS ...).

Thank you all in advance for the answers and all the good mood)

 » 6 weeks ago, # |   +17 IMO if you are training for some onsite contest it's always good to train on whatever IDEs that contest allows, and in that case it's better not to use a template, or at least use a short one that you can quickly write at the beginning of the contest.Otherwise I think Visual Studio is really nice (best debugger I've seen in the IDEs I've tried), not sure about templates because I don't use one.

 » 6 weeks ago, # |   0 I found that VS snippets are useful https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/ide/code-snippets?view=vs-2017You type # and first chars of snippet name (like #tie for cin.tie(0); cin.sync_with_stdio(false);), then press Tab, and code replaces it, with defined cursor position after replace.

Several features are missing, I plan to improve it soon! With your feedback I can make a better tool ;)Find it in the marketplace as acmX. Marketplace or Github
