I asked a question on SO. I got answered by a link to the h-site. I went there and the answer is actually somewhat good, an approach not typically used.

What's the policy on pasting that code here with attribution? Do we have any?

I skimmed through the member agreement and it seems to me that there is no express prohibition.


If you've got your problem solved elsewhere, copy the code/answer here, link to the source, and then in two days, mark it as the answer. We're building a canonical site of programming answers.

Bing, bang, boom.

    Because you can't accept your own answer within 48 hours. – random Sep 5 '09 at 2:33

    random's right, but don't let that keep you from clicking it repeatedly and yelling, "Accept, you jerkwad, accept!" – Eric Sep 5 '09 at 2:34
  • Oh, I marked the link provider as the answer and edited the question with the content. – Vinko Vrsalovic Sep 5 '09 at 2:41
