Definitions for "Identifier"
Context A term in Prolog (and programming in general) Definition An identifier is a sequence of letters, underscores, and digits, with the requirement that the first two characters must be letters. Please note: This definition is valid for Prolog+CG only. Other programming languages may have different definitions of what an identifier is. Examples For example, the following are all identifiers: Abraham Nick br This_is_a_long_identifier This_identifier_contains_2_number_2s Non-examples The following, however, all fail to be identifiers: c3po _red 3little_fishes These are not identifiers because they do not start with two letters.
A name used in a program. Normally some (possibly unpronouncable) combination of letters and digits which starts with a letter. Some programming languages may allow other characters such as underline '_' or hash '#'. Identifiers may be defined by the programmer or they may be pre-defined by the language (e.g. 'sqrt' is often a pre-defined identifier for referring to a 'square-root' function). Older programming languages used to limit identifiers to a maximum of 6 characters - the resulting abbreviations tended to make programs more difficult to understand. Many programming languages allow identifiers of almost any length, though some may only take the first 32 characters into account. There are two main styles of writing long identifiers: either now_for_some_long_name or NowForSomeLongName.

One of the design goals associated with the UDDI registration data is the ability to mark information with identifiers. The purpose of identifiers in the UDDI registration data, namely for businessEntity and tModel instances, is to allow others to find the published information using more formal identifier systems. For example, businesses may want to use their D-U-N-S (Dun & Bradstreet's Data Universal Numbering System), Global Location Number (GLN), or tax identifier in their UDDI registration data, since these identifiers are shared in a public or private community in order to unambiguously identify businesses. In UDDI registries that are only used in private communities, businesses may also want to use privately known identifiers.
The «identifier» element contains a string or number used to uniquely identify a standard document or a statement. In the ASN, the value of the «identifier» property is always a URI. In RDF, this value is expressed most frequently as "rdf:about".

A formal identifier of the data, such as an ISBN or URL.
Campaigner uses identifiers to track links (URL's) that you have included in your email messages. Wherever Campaigner encounters an identifier it replaces it with the URL associated with it. The identifier always follows the format %urln% where n is the number of the link being tracked. You must manually insert all identifiers into the body of your email messages.
a number, like an ISBN, which is associated with a particular instance of a digital object
an information element that is specifically designed to distinguish each entry from its peers in a particular set
Per [RFC2396bis], anything that "embodies the information required to distinguish what is being identified from all other things within its scope of identification." In UML terms, an identifier is an attribute of a resource (the identifier context) that forms an association with another resource (the identifier target). The general term "identifier" does not specify whether the identifier is abstract or concrete, absolute or relative, persistent or reassignable, human-friendly or machine-friendly, delegated or local, or resolvable or self-referential. An identifier is data in the context of the Identifier Authority that assigns it.
