If you want to help, here are some specifics:
- Don't expect to get paid.
This is a non-paying labor of love — for me, and, if you choose to help, for
Giving back is A Good Thing. Technology has been good to me, and I expect
it's been good to you.
- A worked-out solution (FAQ-like question + answer) will get integrated
more quickly than a one-liner suggestion for me to write it up.
- "Marshall, here is a new question + answer on ...."
- "Marshall, YOU should write a new question + answer on ...."
←Will take me longer!
I will try (and always have have tried) to get to the latter, though I have
only so much time.
- Don't worry if you suck at writing. Send me your ideas anyway. I will
gladly wordsmith what you send, both to make it "fit" with the rest of the FAQ
and to make it easy for you.
So send in your suggestions, even if you're not confident in your writing
- Dead external links. Sigh. There are too many of them. If you find one,
it would be very helpful (to the entire C++ community!!) if you'd send
me the correct, updated URL.
Obviously I appreciate any help, even if the only thing you tell me is that
the link is dead. However if you do that, be advised that the link will
merely be removed — it probably won't get corrected.
Remember: you're helping the entire world-wide C++ community.
NOTE: This request for help is not new — suggestions and additions
have always been appreciated, as evidenced by the many,
many attributions to helpful readers. So don't think this newly added
FAQ entry means I was previously unwilling to receive suggestions; that would
be wrong. Instead, this newly added FAQ entry exists to provide specifics
about the sort of help that is most needed, and to coalesce all the "please
help out" requests into one place.
NOTE: The C++ FAQ Book is completely
separate from this on-line C++ FAQ. The C++ FAQ Book is
copyrighted by Addison-Wesley, not me, so contact
them, not me, if you want to help with the book.
