Sometimes I'm interested in doing some quick calculations or generating table formatted a certain way or something on my windows machine but I don't want to get into an overly complicated environment just to do something that I could just as easily print out with an arduino sketch.
I'm aware of processing but that is so graphics based, I'm looking for text input, text output type stuff. I would really like if there was something similar (similar coding) that can just spit out a text file or something and maybe if it's very luxurious have a simple way to input numbers while running the code.
Aside form arduino which I have become very familiar with I really only have experience with VB.net. I'd like to go more towards C without having to get into OOP, just simple procedural programming. What should I use?
