1. programming An independent piece of software which
forms part of one or more larger programs. Different
languages have different concepts of a module but there are
several common ideas.
Modules are usually compiled seperately (in compiled
languages) and provide an abstraction or information hiding
mechanism so that a module's implementation can be changed
without requiring any change to other modules. In this
respect they are similar to objects in an object-orientedlanguage, though a module may contain many procedures
and/or functions which would correspond to many objects.
