I've asked a question, trying to understand a language specific "anomaly", as it's not within my immediate skillset to answer.
What is the purpose of this forum if not to answer Software Engineering questions?
Software Engineering Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professionals, academics, and students working within the systems development life cycle.
My question, even though seeming like a "fix teh codez" question, is well within the bounds of what I perceive this forum to be... or is not? The solution/cause seems routed within the language specification / usage thereof...
I actually intentionally asked on here and not StackOverflow thinking it would be off-topic on there, as my want (in terms of answer type) was to have received a conceptual answer as opposed to... heres a code sample to fix, which I was told StackOverflow is for
- I know the code is broken.
- I don't particularly care about a fix.
- I aimed to understand the why...
...which is a concept pertaining to Software Engineering in general? (and not just this instance of "broke" code)
