Software Program State
See: Software Program, Data Structure, Data Object, Functional Programming, Immutable Object, Software Program Process.
- In computer science and automata theory, the state of a digital logic circuit or computer program is a technical term for all the stored information, at a given instant in time, to which the circuit or program has access. The output of a digital circuit or computer program at any time is completely determined by its current inputs and its state.
