I've noticed that there are various tags for C++, such as:

But there are tags for "c--". Can we add some? I don't have enough reputation to create tags.

    Do you have a question to ask about C--? If so go ahead and ask it and I'll gladly add the C-- tag to your question. If not however, then there was clearly no need for the C-- tag in the past and still none for it right now. Find a question about C-- in the past on programmers and I'll add the tag there if you wish.. Nov 27, 2012 at 18:08

  • your question has 5 tags already that is the maximum amount of tags a question can have.

  • @Ryathal I never added the c tag? Jimmy Hoffa tried adding c-- it says. But I guess it changed it to c. Maybe c-minus-minus?

  • @ColeJohnson that makes sense, 'c--' isn't allowed as a tag it becomes c, i removed it and added c-minus-minus

Apparently, C-- is not a language meant to be written by programmers directly, but rather an intermediary language that high-level-language compilers generate. Therefore, I doubt that anyone who is not working on compilers would ever have to ask a question about C--; that makes C-- a very narrow topic, possibly too narrow for this site.

  • Now why do you not have a name?

  • Cole Johnson: I had a name, but changed it to this pseudo-anonymous name to protest against something in the past

Tags don't exist without a question (or several) for them to be attached to.

If there is a question about "c--" then feel free to add the tag.

  • I can't make tags :/
