A new tag specialized was created 20 hours ago and added to 3 older posts. The tag name itself is way too generic and the tag wiki is:
Customizing generic code for specific cases
Does the community agree that specialized is a meta-tag for Stack Overflow and should be manually removed?
Update: Seems like
specialized is a terminology specific to
scala. A quick search reveals the following:
One interesting feature that was added to Scala in version 2.8 is specialization, using the @specialized annotation.
Annotate type parameters on which code should be automatically specialized. For example: class MyList[@specialized T] ...
Type T can be specialized on a subset of the primitive types by specifying a list of primitive types to specialize at: class MyList[@specialized(Int, Double, Boolean) T] ..
I guess it is not a meta-tag but an incorrectly named tag, so it should not be removed. How about we rename it to [specialized.scala]?
