If you are having a problem with some code and seeking help, preparing a Short, Self Contained, Correct Example (SSCCE) is very useful. But what is an SSCCE?
It is all in the name, really. Take a look at each part. The version you prepare for others to see should be:
- Short (Small) - Minimise bandwidth for your example, do not bore the audience.
- Self Contained - Ensure everything is included, ready to go.
- Correct - Copy, paste, (compile,) see is the aim.
- Example - Displays the problem you are trying to solve.
