I have a question I want to ask regarding using Apple's AppleScript/Objective-C bridge (Objective C wrapped in AppleScript, basically) to implement an HTML/WebKit-based pager (a drop-in for
vimpager) and a HTML-ized manpage writer, which should also be capable of rendering to PDF via pandoc/pdftex, etc.
Is this a:
- Stack Overflow question? (C/Objective-C, APIs)
- Ask Different question? (AppleScript)
- Unix & Linux question? (implementing a pager which is a drop-in for a *nix utility)
- TeX question? (PDF rendering)
- All of the above?
Where and how should I ask this, in order to increase the likelihood of the "right person" seeing it?
Edit: I believe this question was too hastily closed as a duplicate.
While the best answer to this question is indeed identical to answer to the other:
Ask the question on the site you think is most applicable. If ... it does not get any answer, ask a moderator to migrate the question, or alternatively, delete it and re-ask it.
The so-called "duplicate" in question asks
Is cross-posting permitted on multiple Stack Exchange sites if the question is on topic?
whereas this question asks,
Where and how should I ask this [ question that is on topic on multiple Stack Exchange sites? ]
That is to say, if two similar but materially different questions have identical answers,
it does not necessarily follow that the questions are likewise the same.
Calling them duplicate questions does a disservice to both and the site in general I think.
