= M =
memory smash n.
[XEROX PARC] Writing through a pointer that
doesn't point to what you think it does. This occasionally reduces
your memory to a rubble of bits. Note that this is subtly
different from (and more general than) related terms such as a
memory leak or fandango on core because it doesn't imply
an allocation error or overrun condition.
