What is prefered version on handling 'serialized' code snippets, with features added to previous post? I have posted a polynomial expression snippet to which I could not include the division part because original poster whose thread inspired me to start, have not proved finding his solution to the problem.
Should I post new thread and include all code, considering that parts of earlier functionality has also changed in this version?
Should I post the new version as answer to my earlier snippet, or just include link to the more limited version posted earlier.
I also refered my earlier snippet in my new code snippet, however including the direct link to that Code Snippet thread. Is that according to rules, as I remember reading something about self contained in the recent posts about the competition. I also encouraged to use publicly available libraries in code snippets to others instead of reinventing the wheel. How you think about that?
