Microsoft and HackerRank have teamed up to add a new code search feature to Bing. The tool will allow developers to search for solutions to coding problems and then edit the code they find without opening an integrated development environment (IDE).

"Typically, engineers go to search engines to get answers on various sites like, Stack Overflow, Stack Exchange and other blogs," said a company blog post on the topic. "Now, you have a streamlined alternative that will not only spit out the code solution you need but also edit the code and play with it in real-time. No IDE installation required. This will save you endless time you used to spend going back and forth from search to your code editor."

The post added, "In addition to learning how a certain algorithm/code is written in a given language, users will also be able to check how the same solution is constructed in a range of other programming languages too—providing a Rosetta-stone model for programming languages."
