1. [numerical analysis] Said of an algorithm or
computational method that tends to blow up because of
accumulated roundoff error or poor convergence properties.
2. Software that bypasses the defined operating system
interfaces to do things (like screen, keyboard, and disk I/O)
itself, often in a way that depends on the hardware of the
machine it is running on or which is nonportable or
incompatible with other pieces of software.
