machine, all of them using Tiny Internet Interface microcontrollers to interface with the network. Computer Science House's "Internet Coke Machine" was listed as #3 in a list of "The Ten Greatest Hacks of All Time" in PC Magazine, behind NASA's efforts to save Apollo 13 and the PDP-1 | 2010/9/25 3:01:46

Interface (computer science) print that page

In the field of computer science , an interface refers to a point of interaction between components, and is applicable at the level of both hardware and software . This allows a component, whether a piece of hardware such as a graphics card or a piece of software such as an internet browser | 2010/9/25 6:33:56

Macro (computer science) print that page

A macro (from the Greek μακρό for "big" or "far") in computer science is a rule or pattern that specifies how a certain input sequence (often a sequence of characters ) should be mapped to an output sequence (also often a sequence of characters) according to a defined procedure | 2011/9/30 5:00:54

Computer Science (UIL) print that page

Computer Science is designed to test students' programming abilities. It is not the same as the Computer Applications contest, which tests students' abilities to use word processing, spreadsheet, and database applications software, including integration of applications. Computer Science | 2011/2/18 6:21:34

Recursion (computer science) print that page


Most high-level computer programming languages support recursion by allowing a function to call itself within the program text. Some functional programming languages do not define any looping constructs but rely solely on recursion to repeatedly call code. Computability theory has proven

Abstraction (computer science) print that page

In computer science , abstraction is the process by which data and programs are defined with a representation similar to its meaning ( semantics ), while hiding away the implementation details. Abstraction tries to reduce and factor out details so that the programmer can focus on a | 2011/9/16 9:53:00

Variable (computer science) print that page

In computer programming , a variable is a symbolic name given to some known or unknown quantity or information, for the purpose of allowing the name to be used independently of the information it represents. A variable name in computer source code is usually associated with a data storage | 2011/8/18 10:39:24

Deforestation (computer science) print that page

In the theory of programming languages in computer science , deforestation (also known as fusion ) is a program transformation to eliminate tree structures . The term "deforestation" was originally coined by Philip Wadler in his paper "Deforestation: transforming programs to eliminate | 2010/9/26 23:59:59

Theoretical computer science print that page

A theoretical computer science (TCS) is a division or subset of general computer science and focuses on more abstract or mathematical aspects of computing. These divisions and subsets include analysis of algorithms and formal semantics of programming languages . Technically, there are | 2011/4/21 13:17:33
