Where should I ask questions on programs on C/C++, in which I am facing some problems on Loop oriented programs. :/

You'll need to add some more detail here; what kind of problems? Did you check the Stack Overflow FAQ to see if that might be a suitable site for your question? What other sites in the Stack Exchange network did you take a look at? – Martijn Pieters Mar 1 '13 at 17:23
Programming questions belong on StackOverflow. But if your question just consists of "here's my program, it's not working," you'll have to add more detail than that – David Robinson Mar 1 '13 at 17:24
maybe the computer science section or stack overflow. – Manoj Pandey Mar 1 '13 at 17:27
thank you @DavidRobinson – Manoj Pandey Mar 1 '13 at 17:29

It's really hard to understand what you're asking, but I'll give it a shot.

If you're asking a question about programming C or C++, then Stack Overflow is the place to ask those questions.

But remember, you need to be specific in your problem. If you are vague in asking your question (hint: this question also seems vague), then it's likely that your question will be closed.

thank you @george stocker that was certainly helpful – Manoj Pandey Mar 1 '13 at 17:28
Do a seroius effort to find (and fix) your problem before posting. Slogging through the neverending stream of "My program crashes" (Yes, it does. Don't just define a pointer and assume it is magically an array of unspecified size) soon gets tiresome. – vonbrand Mar 1 '13 at 18:17

You can ask programming specific questions on Stack Overflow.

Here are few things to keep in mind:

  • Read the faq before you post any questions.
  • Read the about page to understand how Stack Overflow works.

Your question should have the following components:

  • Code snippet where you are facing the issue
  • The attempts you have made to fix/resolve it
  • Including searches on the web or on Stack Overflow website itself. If you found search results, mention what did not help.
  • Specific area in the code snippet where you are struggling to understand what it does.
  • Avoid posting long code snippets.
