Numeral
A number that represents another number.
Ex. 110 - one hundred and ten stands for 12 in the binary numeration system.
Bit
Binary digit - represents a single number in binary numeration, which can be either one or zero.
EBCDIC
A code developed and used by IBM to represent written characters.
ASCII
Another numeric code for representing symbolic information in computers. It was developed by the ANSI and and is used by all personal computers.
Control Characters
Special non-printable characters used to control execution of commands between a computer and some device connected to it, like a printer. They are usually invisible to computer users.
Pixel
Picture element. The building blocks of a computer picture. Can be black/white, greyscale (more memory needed), or color.
CMYK
Cyan, Margenta, Yellow, Black - The four standard colors used in printing.
RGB
Red, Green, Blue - The three standard colors used to make the dots on the screen of a television.
DARMS
A form of musical coding used by professional musicoligists which can be converted to binary.
MIDI
A more current and widespread coding method of music. Takes less space than a regular CD.
CD/DAT

Operation Code (opcode)
Part on an instruction that tells the computer what to execute. If any additional information is needed to perform the instruction, this is contained in a second part of the instruction called the operand.
Document formatting vs. editing
Formating is changing appearance of the document and editing is changing the content of the document.
Word Wrap
