22.24 What are all these buzzwords I see?

Q: All your FAQs and tutorials seem to take for granted that I know what words like "compile", "link", "makefile" etc. mean. Where can I find all these buzzwords explained??

A: The DJGPP docs use some basic computer lexicon, without which it would be impossible to communicate. If you find yourself completely lost in terminology you don't understand, and this FAQ doesn't explain it, try looking up the words in the DJGPP Lexicon page. Another excellent resource for computer-related terminology is the Jargon File, also available from the GNU FTP site as an Info file and in several other formats.
