I recently find this question "How to create a table with all the combinations of 0 and 1".

- The statement is clear.
- It's popular, many visits, many answers.

But...

- The effort shown to find a solution is "0".
- It sounds a lot like an
*"homework"*. - It's more related to
*"how to program"*, or*"which is the logic I've to use to solve this problem"*then to*"how to use eXcel"*. Nonetheless we have to admit that with tools as`eXcel`

,`gnuplot`

, ..., the boundary is not so well defined. - One of the million "How to convert decimal in binary" links, with
`eXcel`

and the warning on the 10 bits of the internal`DEC2BIN`

function. - A StackOverflow
*"programming"*question "Using DEC2BIN() with large numbers" - The Microsoft Page "Binary from 32-bit integer"

So: **Is the fact that a question like this became popular enough
to move the boundary of what we believe to be admissible as a question in our site? In other words shouldn't it be closed or migrated?**

I always feel a kind of discomfort thinking to close a question...

broadquestion because it is strictly related on how to implement the Decimal-Binary conversion or the binary counting, and you can pass through a wide number of other different techniques. Nowadays there are examples in many programming courses at each level from primary school to the university. For this (programming relate) is not so on topic too and you find different answers. Moreover you may use your own fantasy too. I thought to 5-6 different ways to do it just reading it. Re-reading this comment I thought to other 5-6. But it is not this the only point. – Hastur May 20 '17 at 23:26brandedashomeworkorWe are not a scripting service_(no research or effort shown:"Tell us what research you have done and why it didn't meet your needs"_<-How to Ask)... It's a typical test made to check how much a student followed the course, if he's able to find the limits of a used program or to use the notions learnt till that point...We usually discourage students that only ask to have their problem solved without even try to do smth. BTW I noticed the interest, boosted even because one of the "Hot Network Questions", and I raised the issue. – Hastur May 20 '17 at 23:45
