10 What are some other related groups where I might post questions?

(Answer adapted from the regular "Welcome to comp.lang.c" post by Billy Chambless and Tim Behrendsen)

You *really* ought to be able to work out where to post by yourself. Please, please, please, for heavens' sake read the FAQs and lurk for a while before posting your questions.

Please do not post to more groups than are necessary. Think carefully about the relevance of your post before you post to any of the newsgroups mentioned below. If you decide that your question is indeed relevant to more than one newsgroup and is not a FAQ, please cross-post rather than multi-post. Remember that many regular readers of this newsgroup also follow several of the other groups mentioned below.

Note: if your news server does not carry the borland, microsoft or watcom newsgroups, you might find it necessary to connect to forums.borland.com, msnews.microsoft.com or forums.sybase.com instead. See also http://www.borland.com/newsgroups/ http://sdn.sybase.com/sdn/appdev/newsgroups.stm

* Language Issues

C comp.lang.c, comp.lang.c.moderated C++ comp.lang.c++.moderated, comp.lang.c++ x86 assembly comp.lang.asm.x86

* Non-language-specific Issues

Algorithms comp.programming Graphics comp.graphics.algorithms

Another avenue worth exploring for general algorithms questions might be the bulletin board at the Analysis of Algorithms homepage based at http://pauillac.inria.fr/algo/AofA/ and mirrored at http://www.cecm.sfu.ca/mirror/INRIA/algo/AofA/.

There is a real difference between an algorithm and an implementation thereof. A question regarding an algorithm itself is, strictly speaking, off-topic though issues do get raised here in the absence of any good newsgroup to discuss them in. Questions relating to implementations are of course on-topic here.

* Compilers/Libraries

The gcc compiler gnu.gcc DJGPP (gcc for DOS) comp.os.msdos.djgpp Borland C++ borland.public.cpp borland.public.cpp.language Borland C++Builder borland.public.cppbuilder borland.public.cppbuilder.language Visual C++ microsoft.public.vc.ide_general microsoft.public.vc.language Watcom C/C++ powersoft.public.watcom_c_c++.general CodeWarrior comp.sys.mac.programmer.codewarrior

MFC microsoft.public.vc.mfc comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.tools.mfc OWL borland.public.cpp.owl comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.tools.owl VCL borland.public.cppbuilder.vcl

* Operating Systems/System Specifics

DOS issues comp.os.msdos.programmer MS Windows comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.misc microsoft.public.win16.programmer.* microsoft.public.win32.programmer.* OS/2 comp.os.os2.programmer.misc Macintosh comp.sys.mac.programmer.misc General UNIX comp.unix.programmer Amiga comp.sys.amiga.programmer
