new word: idempotent (meaning something like…actually i have no idea what this definition means)
Huh. I thought the definition was going to have something to do with the efficacy of the democratic party these days… using macs… or something…
adj : unchanged in value following multiplication by itself; “this matrix is idempotent”
that’s a bit clearer…
i guess i meant that i vaguely understand the mathematical definition, but i have no clue how the page i linked to meant to be using it.
Idempotent means the operation that yield the same result after the operation is applied multiple times.. u can see the word in Java Servlet..
