   wax, on which the ancients originally wrote; hence, a book, a
   1. A body of law, sanctioned by legislation, in which the
      rules of law to be specifically applied by the courts are
      set forth in systematic form; a compilation of laws by
      public authority; a digest.
      [1913 Webster]

   Note: The collection of laws made by the order of Justinian
         is sometimes called, by way of eminence, "The Code" .
         [1913 Webster]

   2. Any system of rules or regulations relating to one
      subject; as, the medical code, a system of rules for the
      regulation of the professional conduct of physicians.
      [1913 Webster]

   3. Any set of symbols or combinations of symbols used for
      communication in any medium, such as by telegraph or
      semaphore. See Morse code, and error-correcting code.

   Note: A system of rules for making communications at sea by
         means of signals has been referred to as the

   4. Any set of standards established by the governing
      authority of a geopolitical entity restricting the ways
      that certain activities may be performed, especially the
      manner in which buildings or specific systems within
      buildings may be constructed; as, a building code; a
      plumbing code; a health code.

   5. Any system used for secrecy in communication, in which the
      content of a communication is converted, prior to
      transmission, into symbols whose meaning is known only to
      authorized recipients of the message; such codes are used
      to prevent unauthorized persons from learning the content
      of the communication. The process of converting a
      communication into secret symbols by means of a code is
      called encoding or encryption. However, unauthorized
      persons may learn the code by various means, as in

   6. An error-correcting code. See below.

   7. (Computers) The set of instructions for a computer program
      written by a programmer, usually in a programming language
      such as Fortran, C, Cobol, Java, C++, etc.; also, the
      executable binary object code. All such programs except
      for the binary object code must be converted by a
      compiler program into object code, which is the
      arrangement of data bits which can be directly interpreted
      by a computer.

   Code civil or Code Napoleon, a code enacted in France in
      1803 and 1804, embodying the law of rights of persons and
      of property generally. --Abbot.

   error-correcting code (Computers) A set of symbols used to
      represent blocks of binary data, in which the original
      block of data is represented by a larger block of data
      which includes additional bits arranged in such a way that
      the original data may be read even if one or more of the
      bits of the encoded data is changed, as in a noisy
      communicaiton channel. Various codes are available which
      can correct different numbers or patterns of errors in the
      transmitted data. Such codes are used to achieve higher
      accuracy in data transmission, and in data storage devices
      such as disk drives and tape drives.

   object code (Computers) the arrangement of bits stored in
      computer memory or a data storage device which, when fed
      to the instruction processor of a computer's central
      processing unit, can be interpreted directly as
      instructions for execution.

   genetic code (Biochemistry, genetics) The set of
      correspondences between sequences of three bases (codons)
      in a RNA chain to the amino acid which those three bases
      represent in the process of protein synthesis. Thus, the
      sequence UUU codes for phenylalanine, and AUG codes for
      methionine. There are twenty-one naturally-occurring amino
      acids, and sixty-four possible arrangements of three bases
      in RNA; thus some of the amino acids are represented by
      more than one codon. Several codons do not represent amino
      acids, but cause termination of the synthesis of a growing
      amnio acid chain.
      [1913 Webster +PJC]

   Note: The genetic code is represented by the following table:

7. The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003)

    1. n. The stuff that software writers write, either in source form or after
    translation by a compiler or assembler. Often used in opposition to ?data?,
    which is the stuff that code operates on. Among hackers this is a mass
    noun, as in ?How much code does it take to do a bubble sort??, or ?The
    code is loaded at the high end of RAM.? Among scientific programmers it is
    sometimes a count noun equilvalent to ?program?; thus they may speak of ?
    codes? in the plural. Anyone referring to software as ?the software codes?
    is probably a newbie or a suit.

    2. v. To write code. In this sense, always refers to source code rather
    than compiled. ?I coded an Emacs clone in two hours!? This verb is a bit of
    a cultural marker associated with the Unix and minicomputer traditions (and
    lately Linux); people within that culture prefer v. ?code? to v. ?program?
    whereas outside it the reverse is normally true.

8. The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015)

   1.  Instructions for a computer in some programming
   language, often machine language (machine code).

   The word "code" is often used to distinguish instructions from
   data (e.g. "The code is marked 'read-only'") whereas the
   word "software" is used in contrast with "hardware" and
   may consist of more than just code.


   2.  Some method of encryption or the resulting
   encrypted message.


9. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
CODE, legislation. Signifies in general a collection of laws. It is a name 
given by way of eminence to a collection of such laws made by the 
legislature. Among the most noted may be mentioned the following: 

10. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
CODE, OF LOUISIANA. In 1822, Peter Derbigny, Edward Livingston, and Moreau 
Lislet, were selected by the legislature to revise and amend the civil code, 
and to add to it such laws still in force as were not included therein. They 
were authorized to add a system of commercial law, and a code of practice. 
The code the prepared having been adopted, was promulgated in 1824, under 
the title of the "Civil Code of the State of Louisiana." 
     2. The code is based on the Code Napoleon, with proper and judicious 
modifications, suitable for the state of Louisiana. It is composed of three 
books: 1. the first treats of persons; 2. the second of things, and of the 
different modifications of property; 3. and the third of the different modes 
of acquiring the property of things. It contains 3522 articles, numbered 
from the beginning, for the convenience of reference. 
     3. This code, it is said, contains many inaccurate definitions. The 
legislature modified and changed many of the provisions relating to the 
positive legislation, but adopted the definitions and abstract doctrines of 
the code without material alterations. From this circumstance, as well as 
from the inherent difficulty of the subject, the positive provisions of the 
code are often at variance with the theoretical part, which was intended to 
elucidate them. 13 L. R. 237. 
     4. This code went into operation on the 20th day of May,. 1825. 11 L. 
R. 60. It is in both the French and English languages; and in construing it, 
it is a rule that when the expressions used in the French text of the code 
are more comprehensive than those used in English, or vice versa, the more 
enlarged sense will be taken, as thus full effect will be given to both 
clauses. 2 N. S. 582. 

11. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
CODE, JUSTINIAN, civil law. A collection of the constitutions of the 
emperors, from Adrian to Justinian; the greater part of those from Adrian to 
Constantine are mere rescripts; those from Constantine to Justinian are 
edicts or laws, properly speaking. 
     2. The code is divided into twelve books, which are subdivided into 
titles, in which the constitutions are collected under proper heads. They 
are placed in chronological order, but often disjointed. At the head of each 
constitution is placed the name of the emperor who is the author, and that 
of the person to whom it is addressed. The date is at the end. Several of 
these constitutions, which were formerly in the code were lost, it is 
supposed by the neglect of "copyists. Some of them have been restored by 
modern authors, among whom may be mentioned Charondas, Cugas, and Contius, 
who translated them from Greek, versions. 

12. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
CODE, NAPOLEON. The Code Civil of France, enacted into law during the reign  
of Napoleon, bore his name until the restoration of the Bourbons when it was 
deprived of that name, and it is now cited Code Civil.
