Is it considered in poor taste to post a short program in it's entirety to stackoverflow to get feedback from those with more experience?

@Mysticial codereview.stackexchange.com is only for requesting review of code that is already working (in the sense that it compiles, runs, and generally works the way it was intended to). –  Eliah Kagan Mar 31 '13 at 15:46
    
@EliahKagan I'm fully aware of that. But the way I read the question seemed to imply that the code was already working. –  Mysticial Mar 31 '13 at 15:47
    
@Mysticial Yeah, I'm not saying you shouldn't have suggested Code Review. It's just that it would be bad if lots of people started posting their uncompilable code snippets there. –  Eliah Kagan Mar 31 '13 at 15:48

Yes, it is indeed unsuitable.

Stack Overflow is for specific programming questions - not complete code reviews.

However, there is a site for that - Code Review...

@EliahKagan - Sure. That's what I am getting from the OP - that it is working and they want feedback. –  Oded Mar 31 '13 at 15:48
