Is it all right to paste a long bit of source code and ask the community to find the bug in it? (Naturally also describing what is wrong with as well as possible and including any compiler errors etc.)
I have a thing that I am working on in a new language and I am unsure if Stack Overflow is intended for requests like "here is my code, please figure out what's wrong with it". My code will not compile and I cannot tell from the error messages and the documentation what I'm doing wrong.
Is Stack Overflow the right place to go in a situation like this, or would someone stuck like me have to go narrow it down and then come back to ask a more specific question?
