I asked this question because I researched and did not find any reference to the differences anywhere online or on Stack Overflow.
I did find this other question which asked about two functions, one of which is the same as the questions I asked.
I am not asking a "since he asked it and got upvoted, why can't I ask it?"
I am asking if these types of questions are appropriate for Stack Overflow.
I have seen these types of questions get both good and bad responses (mostly good). So I am not sure why I am getting comments like:
Seriously; even if it's not an Exact dupe (the answers do exist on SO regardless).... the online documentation is not good enough? SO is not a repository of docs. Do you have an issue with this code? problems? have you run into any bugs? no! this question needs to not exist.
on my question.
I would understand in the end if my question was closed, I am just curious on what should be done in general for these types of questions.
I told myself I would not come back... but they just pull me back in....
