A piece of a packet. When a router is forwarding an IP packet to a network that has a maximum packet size smaller than the packet size, it is forced to break up that packet into multiple fragments. These fragments will be reassembled by the IP layer at the destination host. See also: Maximum Transmission Unit. [Source: RFC1392
A fragment of DNA is a piece of DNA, usually a shorter piece than you started out with. For example, if you have a circular plasmid of DNA and you cut it in two places, you will have two fragments of DNA.
Individual essence, or soul. The term conveys that each of us is a fragment of the whole, and particularly, a fragment of our entity, with which we will recombine when we have completed all our lifetimes on the physical plane.
A piece of a packet that results from a router dividing an IP datagram into smaller pieces for transmission across a network that cannot handle the original datagram size. Fragments use the same format as datagrams; fields in the IP header declare whether a datagram is a fragment and, if so, where the data in the fragment occurred in the original datagram. IP software at the receiving end must reassemble the fragments. See also maximum transmission unit.
1. a separated piece of someone's spiritual body. The soul to whom it belongs may not know where it is. It can be imbedded in someone else's spiritual body. 2. in witchcraft, when casting a spell, part of the witch's consciousness that can remain with the person on whom the spell is cast. 3. part of the consciousness of one person that can parasite on another; psychic vampirism; 4. part of the consciousness of an overbearing parent that can obsess a child.
Usually a piece of a table or index. For example, a table fragment can contain a structure for information on the state of California, while the table as a whole contains a structure for information on all U.S. states. (A fragment can also be a whole table or index.)

A data structure containing pixel information which is a product of the pixel rasterization operation. A fragment consists of a color value and the coordinate of the frame buffer location at which that color value is to be written.
In the BSD "fast filesystem," a fragment is a portion of a disk block - usually one-eighth of a block, but possibly one-quarter or one-half of a block. If the last portion of a file doesn't occupy a full disk block, the filesystem will allocate one or more fragments rather than an entire block. Don't confuse "fragments" with "fragmentation." Fragments allow the BSD filesystem to use larger block sizes without becoming inefficient.
to split up. Computers deal with blocks of information often of a fixed size. Some files are too large to fit into a single block and therefore span multiple blocks. If the blocks associated with a file are not contiguous, the file is said to be "fragmented". Fragmentation is a result of the repeated allocation and deallocation of blocks for use by various programs, and generally slows down the operation of the computer. A fragmented hard drive is remedied with a de-fragging utility. Rebooting your computer will de-fragment RAM. See the freeBlock.
A section of a manuscript or folio which has been damaged and become separated from the original quire or codex and represents only a fraction of the original. gathering Gathering is the term used for the units of construction in a printed book. It is the equivalent of the terms fascicle or booklet applied to the manuscript book.
Sets of Object Classes in a Network Resource Information Model grouping classes that model Resources from a certain perspective. An Object Class can belong to one or more Fragments. source: EU-P103 domain: Information Model usage: EU-P103
As standardized in RFC 3986, the fragment is a part of a URI that is separated from the path/file name by a "#" character, and provides information that is reserved for processing by agents that are invoked by the browser to handle the resource information type of the URI. WebCGM standardizes the syntax and semantics of a URI fragment, for transmitting object and picture selection and behavior information to WebCGM viewers.
