I come from C programming, and as clear as they may be, I do not understand many of the examples in the documentation.
Would it be on topic to ask for a C "translation" of some examples?
Posting my comment as an answer, but don't take my opinion as fact:
I personally think it would be on topic,
since we do get questions like that about Matlab (edit: turns out, we do not get exactly this type of question, but we do get IMO similar questions). However, I don't think you'd be broadly successful in getting answers.
Perhaps better to ask specific questions about things you don't understand asking for further explanation (with your C experience in mind), rather than questions that ask for equivalent functionality in a different language.
Answerers may not be C programmers and you might alienate them by asking for C translations when what you might really need is a different explanation.
