DESCRIPTION: "The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (FOLDOC) is a searchable dictionary of acronyms, jargon, programming languages, tools, architectures, operating systems, networking, theory, mathematics, telecoms, institutions, companies, projects, products, history, in fact anything to do with computing. It aims to provide a one-stop source of information about all computing terms and includes many useful cross-references to other entries and to related resources elsewhere on the Internet, as well as bibliographical reference to paper publications. It currently lacks many entries which one can find in paper computing dictionaries but contains more encyclopedia-like entries on subjects such as current hardware and software products, companies and institutions."--About.
