In my case I find VS Code a far superior editor to anything Eclipse based, especially RDi, and I use it for every other language I develop in. Unfortunately, the IBM i extension for VS doesn't work properly for me, it stopped reporting compilation errors for some reason and I haven't had time to work out why yet.

Subject: Visual Studio vs. RDi.

OK, aside from the cost of RDi (not really that high when you consider
support, etc.) why would I use Visual Studio over RDi? I think VS is fine,
no argument with it. Same with ILEditor. If you have a license for RDi,
what's the rationale for using something else?
