abuse (Often abbreviated "BQS") Term used in a pejorative
sense to refer to software that was apparently created by
rather spaced-out hackers late at night to solve some unique
problem. It usually has nonexistent, incomplete, or incorrect
documentation, has been tested on at least two examples, and
core dumps when anyone else attempts to use it. This term was
frequently applied to early versions of the "dbx(1)" debugger.
