loop will run several commands with varied arguments in parallel, with a maximum of n running at any given time. It is suitable for parallelized remote command execution via SSH or similar, but not limited to that.
A programmed repetition of a set of instructions, typically with incrementation of some index value. The instructions will then be repeated on each member of the indexed set of values. Implemented by the for, while, or do structures in many computer languages.
(closed-loop system) A control system that has an output device and a process variable signal supplied by a sensor that is used as feedback. 2. A sequence of instructions that executes repeatedly until a terminating condition is satisfied. 3. A closed-loop or open-loop system.
A group of semantically related segments. The NAD loop, which includes segments NAD to CTA for name and address information, is an example of a loop. Loops may be nested within other loops. If the requirement designator of the first segment in a loop is mandatory (M), then at least one iteration of the loop is required. If a loop is used, the first segment shall be used for each iteration of the loop. Mandatory segments within a loop are mandatory only if the loop is used.
A series of computer instructions that are executed repeatedly until a desired result is obtained or a predetermined condition is met. The ability to loop and reuse instructions eliminates countless repetitious instructions and is one of the most important attributes of stored programs. The symbol signifying the quantity 1,000,000 (106). When used to denote storage, it more precisely refers to 1,048,576 (220).
A block of code that executes against a recordset until the quantity of records is exhausted. For example a report that lists all employees who earn minimum wage would "loop through" the employees table evaluating each employee's pay rate and print only those whose rate of pay is equal to the current minimum wage.
This is used with DO to form a loop that executes a specified number of times. Each time through the LOOP the index is incremented until it reaches the limit, at which point execution proceeds past the LOOP command. Use +LOOP if you want to add more than 1 to the loop index. See DO . : HI ( -- , print HIYA 10 times) 10 0 DO CR ." HIYA " LOOP ; Related Words: DO +LOOP -LOOP
A loop is a series of statements that are executed more than once. Each loop has a control mechanism to stop looping. Chapter 7 "Control Statements," discusses the different types of looping and controls that are used. See also Endless Loop.
A computer loop is what happens when you get in a series of repeating commands, so you end up running around in endless circles. This usually causes your computer to crash or freeze, meaning that you have to restart your computer to get it running again.
An audio clip with recurring rhythmic musical elements suitable for repetition, such as a drum rhythm. As opposed to a one-shot, a clip that is not meant to be repeated consecutively, such as a cymbal crash.
(1) A local circuit between an exchange and subscriber CPE, either residential (single line telephone) or business (PBX). Also called subscriber loop, local line, and local loop. (2) In programming, a sequence of computer instructions that repeats itself until a predetermined count or other test is satisfied.
A code construct that tells the computer to execute code a specific number of times. Each loop has a type to determine general behavior, a condition which determines how many times the loop should run, and a block of code. Executing the loop can be logically divided into a number of iterations, which check the condition and execute the code in the block if the condition is true.
an aerobatic maneuver whereby the airplane flies a vertical circle in the air. The easiest stunt of all to pull off, and any airplane with an elevator can do them. Just make sure you're not flying too close to the ground first... More details here.
If ''x'' is a point in a space ''X'', a loop at ''x'' in ''X'' (or a loop in ''X'' with basepoint ''x'') is a path ''f'' in ''X'', such that ''f''(0) = ''f''(1) = ''x''. Equivalently, a loop in ''X'' is a continuous map from the unit circle ''S''1 into ''X''.
1. The almond shaped section of the trace in a compulsory figure smaller than the corresponding circle within which it is skated. 2. Any compulsory figure consisting of two circles in which a smaller loop is executed midway around each circle of the figure.
A shot hit with a long, upward motion, from as low as the knees to as high as the forehead, grazing the ball and putting heavy topspin on it. It's often used to set up a kill, since the opponent's return is likely to be high.
The generic roller coaster vertical loop is the most basic of roller coaster inversions. Specifically, the loop refers to a continuously upward-sloping section of track that eventually results in a complete 360 degree circle. At the top-most piece of the loop, riders are completely inverted.
network path that passes the same node twice. Loops cannot be analyzed using traditional network analysis techniques such as CPM and PERT. Loops are allowed in GERT. Maximum number of segments This value specifies the maximum number of segments that an activity can be split into when activity splitting is allowed.
A group of semantically related segments; these segments may be either bounded or unbounded (X12.6). The N1 loop is an example of a loop that includes Segments N1 to PER for name and address information.
Loop was a South London band founded in 1986 by Robert Hampson and his wife. They are usually classified as a shoegazing band, however, unlike most shoegazing bands, Loop's sound relied more on Krautrock and No Wave influences. Their songs usually sounded very harsh and repetitive, with indecipherable lyrics buried under layers of noisy guitar riffs.
The loop of a fly line is found when casting and the line comes over the top of itself forming a big â€œCâ€ in the air over the fly rod, eventually straightening to a perfect line. Loops are described as open or closed. Open loops mean slow casts and delicate presentations, while closed loops mean a quick line and hard landing, but effective for casting under structure.
Circuit formed by the two subscriber wires (Tip and Ring), connect to the telephone at one end and the central office (or PBX) at the other. Generally a floating system, not referred to ground, or ac power.
The communications channel between a subscriber and the local exchange carrier central office from which the subscriberÂ's service is provided. Loop costs are the local exchange carrierÂ's costs of installing and maintaining the local loop plant.
1) A communication channel from a switching center or an individual message distribution point to the user terminal (illustrated). 2) In telephone systems, a pair of wires from a central office to a subscriber's telephone. 3) A type of antenna used in direction-finding equipment and in UHF reception.
1. (mainly used by caddies) another term for a round of golf (also might refer to the player a caddie is working for or the job of caddying itself) 2. (also "reroute") a noticeable difference in the path of the club head between the backswing and downswing
The slack film that hangs below/above the film gate. The "loop" allows a smoother transition for the film as it moves from the constant motion of the spool through the intermittent motion of the gate and back to the constant motion of the take-up spool. Another type of "loop" is described below.
Small narrow window with its head rounded (12th century), pointed (13th century) or square (12th, 13th and 14th centuries). (Wood, Margaret. The English Medieval House, 413) Related terms: Castle / Slit
a pilot induced acrobatic maneuver. In essence, a tight spiral dive or large consecutive asymmetric turns immediately followed by a sudden, dynamic turn in the opposite direction to send the pilot looping over the canopy. High acceleration is needed to enter the maneuver with maximum weight shift and a firm brake to initiate the loop sequence. Excessively fast, deep brake may inadvertently spin the wing or reduce the pilot's momentum enough to fall into the canopy mid loop.
a heat exchanger used to transfer heat between a heat pump and the earth, using liquid as a heat transfer medium. Types of loops used in an Earth Energy System include the following: Open: designed to recover and return ground or surface water with a liquid-source heat pump; usually requires two wells â€“ one from which to draw the water (primary well) and a second to receive the circulated water (return well). Closed: a continuous, sealed, underground or submerged system, through which a heat transfer fluid (refrigerant) is circulated. Ground (also Earth): a sealed underground pipe through which a heat-transfer fluid is circulated to transfer heat to and from the earth. Horizontal: pipes that are buried on a plane parallel to the ground. Lake (also Ocean, Pond): sealed pipes arranged in loops and submerged in a lake (ocean or pond), through which a refrigerant passes to absorb or release heat from or into the water. Vertical: pipes that are buried on a plane at 90 degrees to the ground.
1. The plumbing network designed to continuously circulate ultrapure grade water in high purity water systems between storage and disinfection modes to maintain microbiological cleanliness. 2. A plumbing connection used to bypass water around a location designed for installation of a water treatment system or used when the treatment system is out of service for any reason.
A portion of the extended gonad where it bends back upon itself (reflexes) to form a proximal arm and a distal arm. Alternately, this term can refer to a specific type of continued turning in the forward motion of the animal which permits it to reverse direction without making any backward motions.
Detector A vehicle sensor used either to count or detect the presence of a vehicle in the toll lane. The metallic mass of a vehicle located above wires laid in the concrete produce electromagnetic signals that can be sensed electronically.
A time-wasting line that dips in the middle of a curve and rises near the exit, usually caused by the sled's being allowed to climb too high in the early portion of the curve. As a verb, to follow sich a line.
A communications channel from a switching center or an individual message distribution point to the user terminal. Go-and-return conductors of an electric circuit; a closed circuit. A closed path under measurement in a resistance test. A type of antenna, in the form of a circle or rectangle, usually used in direction-finding equipment and in UHF reception.
The Loop is a beltway around Texarkana, a twin city in the U.S. states of Arkansas and Texas, running about 16 miles (26 km). Consisting of Highway 245 - sometimes called Loop 245 - in Arkansas, and State Highway Loop 151 and a section of U.S. Highway 59 in Texas, it forms a three-quarter loop around the east, south and west sides of the city.
Loop is the third in the series of Ring Novels by Koji Suzuki. As of 2005, it has yet to be adapted to the screen as had the other novels, however there have been rumors of a film coming as early as 2006.
Loss of Offsite Power. is an occurrence whereby the normal supply of electrical power from offsite is interrupted.Â Nuclear reactors need power from offsite when shutdown for spent fuel cooling and residual heat removal.Â There are usually several sources of offsite power; however, loss of all sources would result in the automatic start-up of the diesel generators to supply power.
Most modern electronic dance music consists of loops of sound. A loop is a piece of sound that can be played again and again in a coherent sequence. Dance music consists of many types of loops layered on top of each other to create music. One track can contain many loops which may not necessarily be played throughout the entire track. Typically a loop will consist of 16 beats although loops of 4,8,16,32,etc. can also be found.
A siding that had access from both ends. Sometimes long lengths of track parallel to the main line, so that a slow train could be put in the loop to allow a faster train to pass. Sometimes a short length of track that allows a Locomotive to run around the coaching stock.
When waves hit a fixed end, they return back to the source on the other side of the medium. In the formation of this standing wave, a loop is formed. The loop is 1/2 the wavelength , this is the length of a crest or trough
A slow big hook. Also, the act of bringing your throwing hand behind your back in your armswing as it "loops" from out to in; generally not desirable. See also "armswing", "inside out armswing" and "outside in armswing".
Looping is a process used in education in some elementary schools. When a class loops, this means that the class has the same teacher in two consecutive years. For example, a teacher who teaches a third-grade class in one year could teach the same students the following year for the fourth grade.
