abstract data type
Jump to user comments
programming (ADT) A kind of data abstraction where a
type's internal form is hidden behind a set of accessfunctions. Values of the type are created and inspected only
by calls to the access functions. This allows the
implementation of the type to be changed without requiring any
changes outside the module in which it is defined.
