  • cron

    Unix daemon used to run background tasks at specified intervals. For instance, once a day, you can rename your log files with .1, .2, .3, etc. and compress them for archival.

  • deassociate
  • .dylib
    Dynamic Library--the Mac OS/X naming convention for dynamic libraries. Not too sure why they choose that extension since FreeBSD uses .so just like most other Unices... To confuse people, maybe?
  • FIFO
    First In, First Out--This is another way to speak of a pipe or ring buffer. On one side, there is a generator that pushes data in and on the other side you have another program that reads the data sent by the generator. The data comes out in the same order it was pushed in. Usually the data are bytes, but it should be a short, long or even a complete event or object.
