Hello! I’m JCW2016, and new to USACO, C++, and Competitive Programming :D(hence this question).
The USACO contest is tomorrow, and I’m facing a problem that I really should have considered earlier: am I allowed to use https://ide.usaco.guide for my coding?
I know that 1. Prewritten code is not allowed (which is autofilled in USACO IDE) and that 2. I can’t have an “online IDE that displays code publicly.”
Would I be able to use the USACO IDE if I:
- Deleted the prewritten code, then started coding from scratch, and
- Set the “Default Sharing Permissions” in the USACO IDE to private?
If not, I may need some help with my coding set up. Right now, I’m using VSCode to write my code. Whenever I hit “Run,” I don’t see any input/output windows, so I can’t test and debug my solutions. I’m left staring at the “Output” terminal box until I hit “Stop Code Running.”
How should I set up my environment? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much,
