hardware (From the Greek "boustrophe-don": turning like oxen
in plowing; from "bous": ox, cow; "strephein": to turn) An
ancient method of writing using alternate left-to-right and
right-to-left lines. It used for an optimisation performed by
some computer typesetting software and moving-head printers to
reduce physical movement of the print head. The adverbial
form "boustrophedonically" is also found.
