  • Please don't try to do this. If you can't ask a question without dumping a metric ton of code, your question isn't worth asking. – Won't Jun 21 '11 at 14:27

If you find yourself thinking you need to attach project files, you have probably not done enough research yourself. To quote http://tinyurl.com/so-hints :

  • Be as short as possible. If I have to wade through hundreds of lines of code to find the problem, I'm doing work that you should be doing. Often if you work hard to reduce the problem to a short but complete program, you'll find the issue yourself. You can absolutely do this without knowing what the problem is; you should be looking to the community for their expertise, not their willingness to spend time on your problem doing the work that you can do yourself.

No, i don't think so But you can upload anywhere and post just a link to your files.. https://encrypted.google.com/search?q=file+upload+free
