LINQPad : debugging with Visual Studio

I've been a fan of LINQPad for a while and I use it a lot for writing code snippets and testing them.

Note: If you pay for it, you get Intellisense as well.

Came across a situation where I had a bug and couldn't put my finger on it. Would be ideal to debug / step-through it but you can't ...

Well, actually you can - learn something new every day.

Add these lines to your snippet:


So obviously LINQPad is running
Start up Visual Studio - the normal Start screen is fine
Debug - Attach to Process
Select LINQPad.exe from the list and Attach
Run your snippet

BINGO - jumps into VS - debug away.

How have I not known about this?
