Whipping Terms

Page history last edited by dave@layhands.com 14 years, 3 months ago

Guiding Principles:


  1. The intent of these definitions is to create a clean and sensible and unambiguous language which is not bound or influenced by traditional terminology, except where the traditional terminology is sensible and useful.


  1. These definitions are intended to deal with the general case.  It is recognized that there might be exceptions to any rule or definition.


  1. It is understood that adjustments will need to be made along the way.


  1. Nodeology terms can be written in the following ways (using "Tail_End" as an example):


N.Tail_End -- This is pronounced as "n dot tail end" and it specifies that "Tail_End" is a Nodeology term.


N.B.K.Tail_End -- This is pronounced as "n dot b dot k dot tail end" and it specifies the exact path where "Tail_End" resides.  In this case, "Tail_End" resides in the Nodeology/Bindings/Knots path.


.Tail_End -- This is pronounced as "tail end" and it provides a less cumbersome way of specifying that "Tail_End" is a Nodeology term.


  1. There are no blank spaces in Nodeology terms because blank spaces are treated as special characters in certain areas of computing.  This is done for future growth in case the new terms are someday used in computing (e.g. XML).






N.Whipping -- A .Whipping is a gripping formation in which a small-diameter .Cord is wrapped tightly around the outside of one end of a larger-diameter .Cord, binding the strands of the larger-diameter .Cord to prevent unraveling. [discussion: 1 or more comments]
