Said of a capability of a programming language or hardware
equipment that is available by its design without needing
cleverness to implement: "In APL, we get the matrix operations
for free." "And owing to the way revisions are stored in this
system, you get revision trees for free." The term usually
refers to a serendipitous feature of doing things a certain
way (compare big win), but it may refer to an intentional
but secondary feature.
