I'm getting slightly annoyed at people's continued comments on my question, and I'm wondering if I really should be, or if I need to actually fix something.
I've asked what I believe to be a very simple question ("simple" meaning "easy to understand", not necessarily "easy to answer"):
How do I resize a file from the command prompt (or in a batch file)?
I've started receiving comments like:
- "What is the actual problem being experienced?"
- "Is there any real world scenario behind this question?"
- "It is really vague..."
- "... and/or specific to a single requirement"
- Someone even voted to close it as "not a real question".
Does it really matter why I'm resizing the file? Maybe it's because my boss told me to. Maybe it's because I want to learn how to do it. Or maybe it's because I want to avoid fragmentation. In any case, does it make a difference to the answer why I'm resizing the file? If so, what should I clarify?
How do I go about proving that, indeed, I ran into this problem?
What was "vague" about my question?
Did I do something wrong about asking something that's specific to a single requirement?
