The first question I asked on stackoverflow was closed as being off-topic and I was advised to read FAQ. Meta question lead to a moderator opening the question. I want to some clarification again regarding the FAQ because my second question on stackoverflow has also been closed as being off-topic. I have read the FAQ three times so I want to know why is my question off-topic?
The FAQ states that
- We feel the best Stack Overflow questions have a bit of source code in them, but if your question generally covers …
- practical, answerable problems that are unique to the programming profession
I have source code that I wrote and I am asking questions regarding memory efficiency, time efficiency and benchmarking the programs which I think are unique to programming. Then how is this off-topic?
The last meta question lead to many people thinking that there is confusion in FAQ. I would like someone to clarify the FAQ so I don't have to discuss every closed question with a reference to FAQ.
