Typically a printed decal or engraved product designed to be applied on top of or around (or overlay) fasteners, spaces, lights, etc. and provide a unified, finished appearance for specific areas of a product. Overlays are used to provide a one-piece installation to label multiple devices such as buttons, switches & displays. Overlays also typically utilize dead space between devices or added margins to display graphics, logos, and/or additional information such as safety messages, instructions, function labels, etc. See Bezel and Membrane Switch.

One material applied over another material.
Material over the base of the base material.
There are two techniques of physically joining two materials together: one is inlay and the other is overlay (or encrustation). Overlay unites one surface onto another surface chemically through an additional substance such as soldering when joining metal to metal or an adhesive/cement when joining metal to nonmetal (such as gemstones or shell).
transform overlaid on a base plot using the add overlay function. The base plot sets the viewport of the overlay to match its own and transforms the coordinate data of the overlay into its own coordinate space. Only that portion of the overlay's coordinate space that intersects the coordinate space of the managing plot will be visible in the plot output. If the overlay is a plot object, it gives up its base plot status. The base plot to which the overlay is added assumes responsibility for managing the overlay's plot members.
A plot of a symbol's data over an existing symbol's price chart. Overlays differ from spreads. You are not concerned with a mathematical relationship between the two charts when using overlays, only the relative movement.
A group of symbols, pictures, words, or characters. Usually placed over a keyboard of a communication device.
paper placed on an overlay keyboard. Areas depict what will happen if that area is pressed. Images, symbols, words or tactile objects can indicate purpose to the pupil.

Typical data overlays include census and taxfiler information, which can serve to create a clearer picture of the individuals on the database.

Keywords:  exec, pagers, fax, replaced, territory
A means whereby sections of code in main memory which are no longer required may be replaced by wanted sections of code.
A form of area code relief in which a new area code is applied to an existing area code territory. In most cases, numbers for pre-existing telephones, pagers, fax machines, etc. keep the pre-existing area code, while the new area code is assigned to new numbers. This form of relief does not affect a consumer's local calling area, local rates or long distance rates, but does require the use of ten-digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) to make local calls.
In operating systems, an overlay is when a process replaces itself with the code of another program. On Unix-like systems, this is accomplished with the exec() system call.
