I've heard that superuser.com is a place to ask questions related to Linux (Bash Shell). Is superuser.com also a place to ask questions about Python? If not, would questions related to Python coding be asked at stackoverflow.com?

While we allow some shell scripting questions, Python is considered more of a "proper" programming language.

Python programming questions would be considered off topic here and should be asked at Stack Overflow


In short:

Questions about running the Python compiler or Python-compiled programs are acceptable (within reason).

Questions about coding these programs or debugging are off-subject.
