= P =
[from the operation that puts the current information
on a stack, and the fact that procedure return addresses are saved
on a stack] (Also PUSH /push/ or PUSHJ /push'J/, the latter
based on the PDP-10 procedure call instruction.) 1. To put
something onto a stack or PDL. If one says that
something has been pushed onto one's stack, it means that the
Damoclean list of things hanging over ones's head has grown longer
and heavier yet. This may also imply that one will deal with it
before other pending items; otherwise one might say that the
thing was `added to my queue'. 2. vi. To enter upon a
digression, to save the current discussion for later. Antonym of
pop; see also stack, PDL.
