Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A default, in computer science, refers to a setting or value automatically assigned to a software application, computer program or device, outside of user intervention. Such settings are also called presets, especially for electronic devices. The Oxford English Dictionary dates this usage to the mid-1960s, as a variant of the older meaning of "failure in performance." Default values are generally intended to make a device usable "out of the box." A common setting, or at least a usable setting, is typically assigned.show more
