I would like to ask if someone has compiled a list of other linker flags for Xcode. On which Stack Exchange site is this question appropriate?

Stack Exchange sites are not forums. –  Oded Apr 20 '12 at 15:29

If there's no where to ask a question about how to use Stack Overflow, there needs to be. Getting marked down because I'm trying to use the site respectfully makes no sense. –  Eric Apr 20 '12 at 18:24
    
The FAQ is the place to start. It is linked to on every page. I don't know who downvoted this question, but it was probably downvoted as it is not a very clear question (and some people are touchy about SE sites being called forums). –  Oded Apr 20 '12 at 18:28

This is the kind of stuff that people usually look for (and find) in documentation. Try Google. –  Cody Gray Apr 20 '12 at 19:13

(Please compare the current title with the original one. See the difference? The original title was surely worth a downvote, in my opinion.) –  Arjan Apr 20 '12 at 19:18
    
Id'd start with Google :):):) –  dasblinkenlight Apr 20 '12 at 19:30
    
It would be easier to type "man ld" and more rewarding. –  Rosinante Apr 20 '12 at 22:06

This is a question about an IDE/linker which makes it appropriate to Stack Overflow, though you may want to phrase it as a proper question, something to the tune of:

What are some undocumented linker flags for Xcode? I am aware that they exist, as detailed in ....

Also, you may want to phrase it in such a way that it doesn't turn into a list question like this: stackoverflow.com/questions/146297/hidden-features-of-xcode , because those types of questions aren't a good fit for the Stack Exchange format and tend to be closed pretty quickly now. –  Brad Larson Apr 20 '12 at 17:40
    
What happened to general reference questions not being welcome? I very much agree with The Establishment's comment to the question: there's no fit on any Stack Exchange site, I'd say. –  Arjan Apr 20 '12 at 19:20

I disagree. If the OP has a concrete question, ("Is there a linker feature that does X, I can't find one.") then it's a good question. Stamp-collecting so-called undocumented options is just shopping. –  Rosinante Apr 20 '12 at 22:07
