Use Mole 2010 to explore data from the F# Interactive console

I got an interesting e-mail today from someone interested in Mole 2010. He wanted to know how to open Mole 2010 to visualize the data in his F# Interactive console. I didn’t really understand what he meant at first, but this evening I researched it and found a solution for him. According to the fellow who sent me the e-mail, the F# community has been itching for a tool that they can use to visualize their data while working on the F# command line, so hopefully this will satisfy their needs.

I wrote up a short walkthrough document on how to use Mole 2010 in the F# Interactive console. If you are interested, please download it here: Mole 2010 in F# Interactive

I’m not an F# developer by any means, so please pardon any glaring stupidities in my F# code snippets. If you know a better way to write that code, I’m open for suggestions.🙂

Note: This usage scenario is definitely not supported by Molosoft at this time. Mole 2010 and Visual Studio’s debugger visualizer infrastructure were not designed to work in the F# Interactive console. Please see this as an “experimental” solution to the problem. I’ve listed some  known issues in the walkthrough document.

Happy Moling!
