Questions about the Stack Exchange API *only*. If your question concerns any other API, do not use this tag. For bugs, please (also) use the version tag, EG [api-v2.2], that the bug applies to.

This tag is for questions about the use of, or documentation of, the Stack Exchange Application Programming Interface (API).

The Stack Exchange API provides easy programmatic read/write access to the more common functions of the Q&A sites in the Stack Exchange network.
For example, it allows programs to read and write: questions, answers, and comments.
