- To one-shot...Refers to an SLC operator manually activating
a feedback loop to make one attempt to automatically adjust to
within its preset tolerances. This corrects for devices that
slowly drift from their ideal settings, without risking the
possible malfunctions that might arise if the computer made
continuous or frequent adjustments without the operator's
monitoring of the results.

a trigger, as in `one-shot multivibrator.'

document that knows how to open, print, and shred itself, to be
distinguished from a non-object word processor that knows how to
open a document. The OS/2 Workplace '91 shell, with its templates
for classes of interface objects and containers for windows
holding other windows, is an OOUI.
