Is your question not part of the FAQ?

First look at questions tagged to see if there is a question not in this index that might have the answer you seek. If you still can't find an answer, then see the following instructions for proposing an FAQ question.

How can a question be added to this FAQ?

  • Ask only the question, stated plainly and simply, in the question body. The answer goes in an answer.

  • Link back to this index. Paste this at the end of the question:

    [Return to FAQ index](https://codegolf.meta.stackexchange.com/q/1280)
    
  • Tag as and . When a post seems to hit a mature state, it will have added by a moderator.

  • Flag for a moderator to mark community wiki. Any FAQ post not yet community wiki should be made into a community wiki.

  • After the post has the tag added to it, add a link in the above table of contents.

    \$\begingroup\$ Why CW-ify? I don't see that FAQs need to be easy to edit. \$\endgroup\$ – Peter Taylor Mar 16 '14 at 17:15

    \$\begingroup\$ I've added the faq tag. I agree with Peter that it doesn't need to be easy to edit. ;-) \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Jester-Young Mar 17 '14 at 18:54

    \$\begingroup\$ @Chris Because... it's a community faq? It's supposed to be made by the community. Also, meta.stackexchange.com/a/225807/180276 \$\endgroup\$ – Doorknob Mar 18 '14 at 0:30

    \$\begingroup\$ @ChrisJester-Young: What should we do now with the FAQ posts? I flagged some of them with reason "Please mark this as CW because it is a FAQ post", but these flags were marked as helpful and got a "As mentioned by Peter Taylor, there's no need to CW FAQ posts." reason, but this reason looks more like a decline reason, and not as a reason for helpful flags. \$\endgroup\$ – ProgramFOX Mar 19 '14 at 18:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ @ProgramFOX I CW'd them, that's what happened to those posts. As for the flags themselves, I mark them as helpful if the flagger has a point, even if I don't actually implement what they request. (Unfortunately I don't get the same latitude for comment flags: if you dismiss a comment flag, it's considered declined.) \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Jester-Young Mar 19 '14 at 18:24
  • \$\begingroup\$ @ChrisJester-Young: OK, thanks! \$\endgroup\$ – ProgramFOX Mar 19 '14 at 18:28

    \$\begingroup\$ Input and output formats ? I have seen it a 100 times but litteraly can't find it right now. \$\endgroup\$ – HopefullyHelpful May 26 '16 at 14:17
