This subforum is not intended for people asking questions on how a particular program does stuff. Instead, here we ask members to dissect the code themselves! If you have stumbled upon or written a short-ish program that behaves in a very clever way, and all you can think about is sharing with others the secret behind the way it operates, then this is your haven.

Be clear. Be comprehensive. But most importantly, be courteous – if you are describing someone else's work of art, then please give credit where it is due. You can do this simply by providing a link to the place where you found it. Asking the code author's permission would even be the most honorable thing you could do.

This forum is an open-minded environment. If a part of an explanation turned out to be imperfect, then that can be let slide with the understanding that the reviewer gave it a serious effort. On the flipside, if it was false or misleading to the point where it would give an inexperienced programmer some terrible new habits, then some points of criticism are to be expected. This is only in the interest of adding enlightenment to the subject, rather than merely calling out mistakes.

Besides, no one likes seeing a good language getting mangled. Sheer exposure of many well-thought-out routines may act as an antidote to bad programming. Perhaps some of the snippets you'll find in this section will encourage you to write your programs with cleverness and beauty in mind.
