This article is from the alt.comp.lang.learn.c-c++ Frequently Asked Questions. Compiled by Sunil Rao firstname.lastname@example.org.
alt.comp.lang.learn.c-c++ is an unmoderated newsgroup for the discussion of issues that concern novice and non-expert programmers in C and C++ who wish to *LEARN* more about one or both of these languages.
That probably looks scary. Basically, anybody can post to the group. Provided the questions you post are on-topic and the answers you provide are accurate, you should not have a problem. If your question is off-topic, you will typically be redirected to a newsgroup that is more appropriate; if your answers are inaccurate, you risk being corrected with a flame.
