An archive file is a file that is composed of one or more computer files along with metadata........
C (as in the letter ''c'') is a general-purpose, imperative computer programming language, supporting structured programming, lexical variable scope and recursion, while a static type system prevents many unintended operations.
C++ ("see plus plus") is a general-purpose programming language.
In telecommunication, a communication protocol is a system of rules that allow two or more entities of a communications system to transmit information via any kind of variation of a physical quantity.
Data is a set of values of qualitative or quantitative variables.
Data transmission (also data communication or digital communications) is the transfer of data (a digital bitstream or a digitized analog signal) over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel.
In computer disk storage, a sector is a subdivision of a track on a magnetic disk or optical disc.
Electronic mail (email or e-mail) is a method of exchanging messages ("mail") between people using electronic devices.
In computer science, data that has several parts, known as a record, can be divided into fields.
A file format is a standard way that information is encoded for storage in a computer file.
A fingerprint in its narrow sense is an impression left by the friction ridges of a human finger.
In telecommunication, frame synchronization or framing is the process by which, while receiving a stream of framed data, incoming frame alignment signals (i.e., a distinctive bit sequences or syncwords) are identified (that is, distinguished from data bits), permitting the data bits within the frame to be extracted for decoding or retransmission.
Image file formats are standardized means of organizing and storing digital images.
Many programming languages and other computer files have a directive, often called include (as well as copy and import), that causes the contents of a second file to be inserted into the original file.
Information technology (IT) is the use of computers to store, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise.
The Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks that use the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link devices worldwide.
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) develops and promotes voluntary Internet standards, in particular the standards that comprise the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP).
The Internet Protocol (IP) is the principal communications protocol in the Internet protocol suite for relaying datagrams across network boundaries.
An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.
HTTP header fields are components of the header section of request and response messages in the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).
Magnetic storage or magnetic recording is the storage of data on a magnetized medium.
Within Internet message handling services (MHS), a message transfer agent or mail transfer agent (MTA) or mail relay is software that transfers electronic mail messages from one computer to another using a client–server application architecture.
The Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) is an application protocol used for transporting Usenet news articles (netnews) between news servers and for reading and posting articles by end user client applications.
A network packet is a formatted unit of data carried by a packet-switched network.
In computer science, overhead is any combination of excess or indirect computation time, memory, bandwidth, or other resources that are required to perform a specific task.
In typography, the page footer of a printed page is a section located under the main text, or body.
Parsing, syntax analysis or syntactic analysis is the process of analysing a string of symbols, either in natural language, computer languages or data structures, conforming to the rules of a formal grammar.
In computing and telecommunications, the payload is the part of transmitted data that is the actual intended message.
A programming language is a formal language that specifies a set of instructions that can be used to produce various kinds of output.
A signature (from signare, "to sign") is a handwritten (and often stylized) depiction of someone's name, nickname, or even a simple "X" or other mark that a person writes on documents as a proof of identity and intent.
A specification often refers to a set of documented requirements to be satisfied by a material, design, product, or service.
In computer programming, a subroutine is a sequence of program instructions that performs a specific task, packaged as a unit.
In computer networks, a syncword, sync character, sync sequence or preamble is used to synchronize a data transmission by indicating the end of header information and the start of data.
In information technology, trailer or footer refers to supplemental data placed at the end of a block of data being stored or transmitted, which may contain information for the handling of the data block, or just mark its end.
Usenet is a worldwide distributed discussion system available on computers.
Wireless communication, or sometimes simply wireless, is the transfer of information or power between two or more points that are not connected by an electrical conductor.
