An imaginary supernatural being, commonly a little sprite, much like a fairy; a mythological diminutive spirit, supposed to haunt hills and wild places, and generally represented as delighting in mischievous tricks.
An elf is a mythical creature of Germanic mythology and Germanic paganism which still survives in northern European folklore. In Norse mythology they were originally a race of minor gods of nature and fertility. Elves are often pictured as youthful-seeming men and women of great beauty living in forests and other natural places, underground, or in wells and springs.
Elf is a 2003 Christmas-themed comedy film directed by Jon Favreau and released in the US on November 7, 2003.
Elf was a Blues-rock band founded in 1967 by singer Ronnie James Dio, keyboardist Doug Thaler, drummer Gary Driscoll, and guitarists Nick Pantas and David Feinstein. The band was originally called The Electric Elves, but was shortened to The Elves and finally Elf in 1969. Elf disbanded in 1975, after recording only three albums.
In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, elves are a humanoid race that are one of the primary races available for play as player characters. Elves are renowned for their grace and mastery of magic and weapons such as the sword and bow. Becoming physically mature by the age of 25 and emotionally mature at around 125 (Races of the Wild; Williams, Skip), they are also famously long-lived, capable of living more than half a millennium and remaining physically youthful.
elf is a command-line tool that allows a user to analyze the contents of an ELF object file header. This header contains various integral values such as the virtual entry point of the object file, the machine architecture it was compiled for and more.
Executable Linking Format. The ELF 64 object file format is used for 64-bit object files in HP-UX 11.x. ELF 64 is based on the 32-bit industry standard object file format developed and published by the UNIX Systems Laboratory. The SOM format is used for 32-bit HP-UX 10.x and 11.0. See also: SOM.
Is an acronym that stands for Extensible Linking and Format. This is a standard file format for object files. In addition to machine code, an ELF object file contains headers and other information used by the linker to create the final .abs program. There are other types of object file formats such as COFF (Common Object File Format), but ELF is very common for embedded systems. We usually save everything in an ELF/DWARF 2.0 format for this class.
The term ELF is used in reference to electromagnetic fields having frequencies much lower than the frequencies of signals typically used in communications. The most common ELF field is radiated by utility power lines.
Extremely low frequency. For magnetic fields and alternating electric fields, the ELF fields range from 5Hz to 2Khz. mission - The emitting of different types of radio frequencies, magnetic fields and light.
Extremely Low Frequency. Frequency band in the range of 3 - 30 Hz, corresponding to wavelength from 100,000 km to 10,000 km. EHF band overlaps audio frequencies. Because of its wavelengths, it's almost impossible to make antenna and transmitter that works at this band.
Extremely Low Frequency. For those concerned with reducing their exposure to the electromagnetic fields associated with electronic displays, conductive coatings provide shielding from ELF/VLF (electric field) radiation to help comply with TCO and MPRIII standards. We currently carry a matrix of Anti-Reflection/Conductive Windows.
display:(Extremely Low Frequency) A type of radiation given off by almost any electric device, but potentially dangerous amounts come from power lines, heavy machinery and some video monitors. The best prevention is to sit at arm's length from your monitor and stay away from the back or sides of one - that's where the radiation is highest. Shop for low-ELF displays.
xtremely ow requency - Method of communicating with submerged submarines, the ELF channel can transmit at the rate of approximately one character per minute. Not to be confused with the EAM channel, which is for Emergency Action Messages (ie, launch the nukes.)
A method of radio communication which uses very long wavelengths capable of penetrating the deep ocean. ELF systems are low-speed and capable of transmitting only a few characters per minute - just enough to let a submarine know it has messages waiting topside.
