89 Glossary \z "GLOSSW.DOC- 1001" \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1002" A mode in the Windows operating system that runs on the 80386 and 80486 processors. It provides access to extended memory and the ability to run non-Windows-based applications. This and standard mode are both referred to as protected mode in the Windows operating system and offer more capability than real mode. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1003" All processors in the Intel 8086 family, including the 8086, 80286, 80386, and 80486 CPU chips. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1004" \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1005" \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1006" All math processors (also called math coprocessors) in the Intel 8087 family, including the 8087, 80287, and 80387 chips. These processors perform high-speed floating-point and binary-coded-decimal number processing. The 80486 chip includes a math processor. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1007" The CodeView window in which the floating-point math processor’s registers are displayed. This window remains empty until a math processor instruction is executed. If the program uses the Microsoft math processor emulator library, the contents of the emulated math processor’s registers are displayed. A \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1008" See “argument.” \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1009" A printed-circuit card that plugs into a computer and controls a device, such as a video display or a printer. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1010" The memory location of a data item or procedure, or an expression that evaluates to an address. In CodeView, the expression can represent just the offset (a default segment is assumed), or it can be in segment : offset format. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1011" A range of memory bounded by two addresses. \z "GLOSSW.DOC- 1012" Assignment to a segment at link time. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1013" The institute responsible for defining programming-language standards to promote portability of languages between different computer systems. An 8-bit character set that contains 256 characters.

90 Glossary Term§ \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1014" \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1015" A set of system-level routines that can be used in an application program for tasks such as input, output, and file management. In a graphics- oriented operating environment like Microsoft Windows, high-level support for video graphics output is part of the API. \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1016" The conventional name for the first argument to the main function in a C source program (an integer specifying the number of arguments passed to the program from the command line). \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1017" A value passed to a routine or specified with an option in the command line for a utility. Also called an actual parameter. See also “parameter.” \z "GLOSSW.DOC-1018" The conventional name for the second argument to the main function in a C source program (a pointer to an array of strings). The first string is the program name, and each following string is an argument passed to the program from the command line.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
