I consider myself a beginner, therefore I usually end up using the tag.

For these questions, am I violating the tag?

  1. Reverse Polish notation based compiler
  2. Code Generator Generator

Also keep in mind that I consider myself a beginner when it comes to C++ and Perl.

Quoting the tag excerpt:

Add this tag to your question to indicate that you are new to the language of your code.

So I'd say: No, you are not violating the tag ;-)


The best one to decide if you are a beginner or not is yourself.

If you feel like a beginner in the language, go ahead and use the beginner tag.

It is hard to define a specific point where you cross the line from being a beginner to not being a beginner anymore, you will have to set that line yourself.
