English Dictionary: real-time by the DICT Development Group
2 results for real-time
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:
real-time
adj
  1. of or relating to computer systems that update information at the same rate they receive information
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   real-time
  
      1. Describes an application which requires a program to
      respond to stimuli within some small upper limit of response
      time (typically milli- or microseconds).   Process control at a
      chemical plant is the classic example.   Such applications
      often require special operating systems (because everything
      else must take a back seat to response time) and speed-tuned
      hardware.
  
      2. In jargon, refers to doing something while people are
      watching or waiting.   "I asked her how to find the calling
      procedure's program counter on the stack and she came up with
      an algorithm in real time."
  
      Used to describe a system that must guarantee a response to an
      external event within a given time.
