= B =
Used of an algorithm or implementation
considered extremely robust; lossage-resistant; capable of
correctly recovering from any imaginable exception condition -- a
rare and valued quality. Implies that the programmer has thought
of all possible errors, and added code to protect against each
one. Thus, in some cases, this can imply code that is too
heavyweight, due to excessive paranoia on the part of the
programmer. Syn. armor-plated.
