From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
      (Or "primitive") A built-in function or operator is one
      provided by the lowest level of a language implementation.
      This usually means it is not possible (or efficient) to
      express it in the language itself.   Typical examples are the
      basic arithmetic and {Boolean} operators (in {C} syntax: +, -,
      *, /, %, !, &&, ||), bit manipulation operators (~, &, |, ^)
      and I/O primitives.   Other common functions may be provided in
      libraries but are not built-in if they are written in the
      language being implemented.
