Is it permissible to use short code snippets from the hints provided by the code author?

Is it permissible to use short code snippets from the hints provided by the code author when I am confused while working on a problem and seek guidance?

Permitted by who and for what?

Is it for certificate projects?


I would suggest you create a forum post and ask for help. You will likely learn a lot more by asking for help than by copying code.

To course of each subject I study, and I extract code snippets from the given instructions

I’m still not sure I understand.

But unless code is licensed in a way that doesn’t allow for its use there is nothing stopping you from using it.
