= R =
1. To extract the digital representation of a
piece of music from an audio CD. Software that does this is often
called a "CD ripper". 2. [Amiga hackers] To extract sound or
graphics from a program that they have been compiled/assembled
into, or which generates them at run-time. In the case of older
Amiga games this entails searching through memory shortly after a
reboot. This sense has been in use for many years and probably gave
rise to the (now more common) sense 1.
