I was working with a client today who was using VSCode, https://code.visualstudio.com, and was surprised to see that it recognized Stan files. There was no syntax highlighting, although there is an extension that provides that functionality, but it automatically uses the Stan logo for the tab icon.
This was neat and all but it raised a question – what is the status of template/Eigen/Stan compatibility with the msvc? I know there were problems a few years ago but I can’t seem to find reference current problems online. Have we abandoned the idea of msvc support on Windows just because the availability of rtools or have just not explored the most recent version of msvc?
