      Have you tried Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable? You can also write a method in My Extensions to set variables, and then call it in any query. For instance:

      public static class MyVar
      {
      public static void Test()
      {
      Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable ("foo", "value");
      Environment.SetEnvironmentVariable ("bar", "value");
      }
      }

      Then just call MyVar.Test();

        The 5.07.06 beta fixes this problem (at least to the point where LINQPad will no longer hang). Autocompletion is likely to lag, though, with queries of this size.

          The situation with regard portable deplpoyments has improved in recent betas:
          http://www.linqpad.net/PortableDeployment.aspx

          You can now portablize connections, drivers, default namespaces & references and user preferences, as well as queries, plug-ins and snippets.

            LINQPad styles the <pre> tag to use a proportional font. A workaround is to add the <code> tag as well.

              Someone has just published a 3rd party LINQPad driver for PostgreSQL:

                If you add the following namespace:

                TIL = System.Transactions.IsolationLevel

                and hit "Set as default for new queries"

                ...would that help?

                  LINQPad honors the global Windows DPI setting. If general readability is an issue, go to the display properties, and choose display scaling > 100%.

                  If this does not meet requirements, what is the rationale for wanting LINQPad to use a font for its dialogs, menus, etc., that is larger the font used by all other Windows applications?

                    Also note that any DLL that you put into LINQPad's "plugins folder" (Edit | Preferences | Folders) will be automatically referenced by all queries.

                    So if you want every query to automatically reference multiple extension assemblies, you can completely do so if you build those extensions in VS.

                      This is easy to work around - run your query with Ctrl+F5 (run without debugger) instead of F5.

                      Alternatively, uncheck the 'Break when exception is unhandled/thrown' buttons on the toolbar, and delete any breakpoints. LINQPad then runs your scripts without a debugger by default, and Debugger.Launch() will work as before.

                                        What's the difference between what you're describing and simply running Remote Desktop? Wouldn't Remote Desktop do exactly what you need in this scenario?

                                          There's an option in recent betas (www.linqpad.net/beta.aspx) to specify DateTime formatting (Edit | Preferences). Have you tried this?

                                            Bear in mind that LINQPad now offers a Cache() method to cache results between queries (see Help | What's New for info on how to use it).

                                            As you say, a REPL window in LINQPad is doable with Roslyn. It's just a question of how much value it adds.
