Talk:Garbage (computer science)
"Garbage" as in worthless data in memory
Another use of "garbage" in computer science refers to "bad" data, or data that has been garbled, as in "the program was reading from uninitialized memory, so it was just getting garbage." The artice Atomic_operation uses this meaning in its link to this page.
I'd like to see this article acknowledge this other use (though "garbage" as in "garbage collection" is much more interesting). MusicScience (talk) 05:22, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
