communications (US -ll- or -l-) The process of packing one
or more items of data into a message buffer, prior to
transmitting that message buffer over a communication channel.
The packing process not only collects together values which
may be stored in non-consecutive memory locations but also
converts data of different types into a standard
representation agreed with the recipient of the message.
