Say you're confronted with a new problem and you don't know what tools exist to solve it. Is it fine to create a question describing your problem and asking what tools are used for that task?

Generally I would think it would be better just to describe the problem you're having. "What tool should I use" is really just a subset of "which tech should I use" which ends up just being a collections of links.

\$\begingroup\$ @Do Yep! "How do I do X" is an answerable question. \$\endgroup\$– AnkoMar 18, 2013 at 14:14
