Local Multipoint Distribution System (LMDS) : A wireless communication
technology for supporting point-to-multipoint applications
Logic circuit: See combinational circuit.
Logic error: An error that occurs when the actual logic of a program is different
from the desired logic. Such errors cause the program to produce incorrect output.
Logic gate: An electronic circuit which operates on one or more input signals to
produce standard output signals. For example, AND, OR and NOT gates. Logic
gates are the building blocks of all the circuits in a computer.
Logical operators: Symbols used to show a logical relationship between two data
items. Examples in FORTRAN are .EQ. for equal and .GT. for greater than. The
symbols >, < and = are also logical operators. Logo An easy-to-learn programming language, which is
Loop A sequence of instructions that is executed repeatedly until a terminal
Looping logic: See iteration logic.
Low-level languages: Programming languages that normally translate from one
source instruction to one object instruction. These languages are machine
Lycos: An Internet search engine.
Machine language: A low-level language that is directly understandable by the
computer system. Each model of a computer has a unique machine language.
Macro: A sequence of frequently used operations or keystrokes bundled together
as a single command or keystroke by software so that the invocation of the single
command or keystroke leads to the invocation of all the operations/keystrokes in...
