Articles as manual pages, or miniature tutorials?
I see a number of articles related to C/C++ that are tutorials. For example, there is an article on stdarg.h which provides implementation instructions. Numerous code samples -- the entire standard library article series is written like this. Is this good for Wikipedia, to be partial, second-class documentation? A third-rate tutorial site? I don't understand the motive for including all this information in an encyclopedia. I know people are passionate about the language, but these articles are clearly beyond casual encyclopedic interest. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:NOT#GUIDE -- thoughts?
C++0x still cited widely
You guys are probably aware of this already, but I have noticed that many C++ and general computer programming articles still refer to C++0x as an upcoming standard, rather than to C++11 adopted in August of this year. Is there any organized effort to fix that or do we just let it trickle in? TiC (talk) 15:49, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
- I think that renaming effort is needed. C++0x is a history now. It should be explained what is that in the main C++ article. Everywhere else the C++11 should be used. Code-Analysis (talk) 12:31, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
for loop image
Hi. I have found this image : File:C language for.png . Is it bad image ? ( increment should be done also after last check of condition ) Am I right ? Regards --Adam majewski (talk) 09:47, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Hello all! I’m working with the Saylor foundation to create a series of original, crowd-sourced textbooks that will be openly licensed and freely available on the web and within Saylor’s free, self-paced courses at Saylor.org. We are using Wikibooks as a platform to host this project and hope to garner the interest of existing members of the Wikibooks and Wikipedia community, as well as bring in new members! We thought that some of your members may be interested in contributing to our book Saylor.Org's C++ Programming .(talk) --Thomas Simpson (talk) 17:20, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
Request for comments: Establish standards for version history tables in software articles
I'd like to introduce the Template:Version template to Wikipedia with the goal to establish one standard for version history tables (or lists). It simplifies creation of release histories, standardizes release stages and makes the content more accessible. Please comment on the template talk page (there already is some discussion). Thanks for your contribution. Jesus Presley (talk) 07:08, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
At some point, a few plain text names were included in the list of participants. I tried searching the names but cannot connect them to any existing Wikipedia accounts. As far as I can tell, they may be the names of three unregistered people.
Before simply removing them, I'm wondering if anyone knows who they might be.

I wrote an article about a C++ book C++ Primer, but it was speedily deleted as advertisement. I hope some one would be able to help. Here is the deletion review. --HNAKXR (talk) 02:33, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
