I like that idea iamcreasy. Instead of performing the switch behind the scenes doing it so that you could see it would make the CE a good way tolearn C++. Making it more of a stepping stone then a seperate language/editor.

The idea of CE auto managing #include for you wouldn't work, as it's far more complex to just add "#include" for your cpp's/headers, in many cases there need to be performed additional processing steps, forward declarations, moving function bodies out of their classes to outside, proper order rearrangement, that would simply not work. That's why code editor works on separate basis, on .es files, and then it converts everything to .cpp/.h

Also note that there already is built-in conversion to .cpp .h files, it's always performed during building. So if for any reason you wish to switch back from Code Editor to Visual Studio, you don't need to rewrite your .es codes from scratch, but you can use .cpp .h .vcproj files generated in "project/_C++ Build_" folder

Also note that debugging is possible by using option "play/debug" and "play/open in visual studio"

umm...i thought it was like managing imports of java, Netbeans has a similar feature. When the IDE encounters this kind of error, the suggestion list contains auto Import/auto include feature. You can mimic this feature in CE. You just need to select it from the list, and the line is added.

I am just trying to say CE's current way to doing things can be misguiding for most of the amateur people thinking that this IS the C++ way.Which feels terrible.

I think Code Editor is not bad choice. Its like C++ but you dont need to include headers/lib's. But i will never use this. The best choice is c++ and it will never change!

The code editor is the fast and easy way to do some code job,also good for an "all in one" editor,i think it's neccesary for EE,hope it will be more powerful and easy to use!!
