Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code (also called VS Code) is one of the most popular free IDEs, published by Microsoft. We can say it is a free version of Visual Studio. It can be used with MinGW Linux Simulation (with GNU C/C++ Compiler) to develop C++ applications running on the command console. It is the most well-known open-source code editor for a wide variety of languages, and it can act as an IDE with the right extensions. This developer-environment tool also offers multiplatform support and is excellent for developers seeking customization and a high degree of flexibility. However, Visual Studio Code is built in Electron and can consumer more resources than other native IDEs.

There are several mathematical questions regarding prime numbers are still unsolved.  Finding them and relations and their effects on some other functions, graphics really interesting in mathematical phenomena.

Here is a VS Code example with GCC Compiler to find number of prime numbers in a given range. We are also testing calculation time five times.
