Any division extending like a branch; any arm or part connected with the main body of thing; ramification; as, the branch of an antler; the branch of a chandelier; a branch of a river; a branch of a railway.
A line of development within a code base, created from a snapshot of another branch, usually the trunk. Development proceeds independently on separate branches, but merges may occur in either direction in accordance with the branches' integration rules. There are two general types of branch: release and project.
The organizational level having functional/geographic responsibility for major incident operations. The Branch level is organizationally between Section and Division/Group in the Operations Section, and between Section and Units in the Logistics Section.
That organizational level within the Incident Management System having functional /geographic responsibility for major segments of incident operations (e.g., Hazmat Branch). The Branch level is organizationally between Section and Division/Sector/Group.
In a computer program, an instruction that selects one of a number of alternative sets of instructions. A conditional branch occurs only when a specified condition is met. An instruction that selects one of a number of alternative sets of instructions.
A branch (or jump on some computer architectures, such as the PDP-8 and Intel x86) is a point in a computer program where the flow of control is altered. The term branch is usually used when referring to a program written in machine code or assembly language; in a high-level programming language, branches usually take the form of conditional statements, subroutine calls or GOTO statements. An instruction that causes a branch, a branch instruction, can be taken or not taken: if a branch is not taken, the flow of control is unchanged and the next instruction to be executed is the instruction immediately following the current instruction in memory; if taken, the next instruction to be executed is an instruction at some other place in memory.
An edge or internode (connection between two nodes) on a tree (graph theory); on a phylogenetic tree, a branch is commonly used to represent a lineage, whether ancestral or terminal. The term is sometimes also used for an internode and all nodes and internodes distal to (descended from) it.
Each level within the organization tree is called a branch. Each type of branch in the tree is indicated by a different icon. The contents of a branch with sub-units can be viewed by clicking the plus (+) sign next to it.
A branch is a group of related sites controlled by the same master in IW.Â For example, all of TruthMediaâ€(tm)s site are in one branch.Â You can see the different branches in the file tree on the left side of the screen in IW.
A branch refers to a copy of an existing original tree of directories and files. A branch always begins life as a copy of something, and moves on from there, generating its own history. Branches are usually created to try out new features without disturbing the main branch of development with compiler errors and bugs.
The smallest congregational unit of the Church, a branch is a pre-cursor for a ward. In order to qualify for a ward, certain criteria must be met, among which are a minimum number of worthy priesthood holders.
codeline, project, stream A collection of related files that can be managed as a unit. When you create branches in Perforce, the relationship between source and target files (in other words, the ancestry of files) is preserved.
A conditional transfer of control from any statement to any other statement in a component, or an unconditional transfer of control from any statement to any other statement in the component except the next statement, or when a component has more than one entry point, a transfer of control to an entry point of the component.
The Union has a number of branches which are collections of members defined by area and/or sector. The branch also provides an umbrella for a number of chapels and will assist with issues relating to chapels and individual members wherever possible. Members or chapels with motions for ADM must do so through their branch. Chair A branch officer and representative, the Chair also presides over meetings ensuring that the correct procedures are followed. The current Chair of the branch is James Doherty.
A branch, of say a Credit Union, is a local office and outlet for that Credit Union, and is provided so that members can have access to their accounts and other information. Branches also provide for non-members, with brochures and helpful staff to answer questions and so on.
A term used in interactive media programming which refers to the directions the program may take based on user responses. A branch is a program segment linked to other segments by decisions the program viewer makes.
A decision point in an Activity Diagram. Multiple Transitions emerge from the Branch, each with a Guard Condition. When control reaches the Branch, exactly one Guard Condition must be true; and control follows the corresponding Transition.
A branch is like a bank shop where a bank's products and services are provided to their customers. In Australia bank branches are open for business during normal business hours (usually 9am to 4pm) and some also open on Saturdays.
A branch, banking centre or financial centre is a retail location where a bank or financial institution offers a wide array of face to face service to its customers. Like a store, a branch may either be a standalone building, or an office within a larger complex, such as a shopping mall.
A named line of development. Often these are tied to a repository in a many-to-one relationship. Other implementations are possible, for instance, Monotone supports fully distributed branches which do not exist exclusively on top of any particular repository, while other systems such as Darcs and Bzr tie branches to repositories in a one-to-one fashion.
A company can operate through a subsidiary which is a new corporate entity or a branch which is an outpost of the company where the company is itself directly responsible for activities of the branch. The profits of a branch of a foreign company operating in the UK may be subject to UK tax - the position tends to depend on the applicable double tax treaty with the country of origin of the foreign company.
