/man"yoo-la"ri-tee/ ("manual" + "granularity") A notional
measure of the manual labor required for some task,
particularly one of the sort that automation is supposed to
eliminate. "Composing English on paper has much higher
manularity than using a text editor, especially in the
revising stage." Hackers tend to consider manularity a
symptom of primitive methods; in fact, a true hacker
confronted with an apparent requirement to do a computing task
by hand will inevitably seize the opportunity to build
another tool (see toolsmith).
