deep magic
Jump to user comments
[possibly from C. S. Lewis's "Narnia" books] An awesomely
arcane technique central to a program or system, especially
one neither generally published nor available to hackers at
large (compare black art); one that could only have been
composed by a true wizard. Compiler optimisation techniques
and many aspects of OS design used to be deep magic; many
techniques in cryptography, signal processing, graphics, and
AI still are. Compare heavy wizardry. Especially found in
comments of the form "Deep magic begins here.". Compare
