Has anyone used ChatGPT for programming, it has helped me solve two problems today. One using an obscure library to link into an API from an unrelated website.
It would have taken ages to piece it all together manually.

An example just off the creating a bash script and appending some text to a file, then asking it to do it a different way.

Does it write code and test it 'virtually' before spitting out an answer?

Don't think it tests it but it should be on the user to do so, just like when you get an answer from StackOverflow.

Its a great tool to build the core of what you want and you can tweak it.

Coming back to this, the updates seem to have completely downgraded the coding abilities.
GPT4 doesn't remember much context nowadays, avoids producing code in lots of areas and instead just wants to summarize.

That magic when I first started using it seems to have disappeared, not sure if anyone else noticed?

If you access ChatGPT Playgrounds it does list the older gpt-4-0613 but I don't think you can select it in their own interface.
