Jargon File?
frobnicate /frob'ni-kayt/ vt. [Poss. derived from {frobnitz}, and?
usually abbreviated to {frob}, but `frobnicate' is recognized as the?
official full form.] To manipulate or adjust, to tweak. One frequently?
frobs bits or other 2-state devices. Thus: "Please frob the light?
switch" (that is, flip it), but also "Stop frobbing that clasp; you'll?
break it". One also sees the construction `to frob a frob'. See {tweak}?
and {twiddle}.
Usage: frob, twiddle, and tweak sometimes connote points along a?
continuum. `Frob' connotes aimless manipulation; `twiddle' connotes?
gross manipulation, often a coarse search for a proper setting; `tweak'?
connotes fine-tuning. If someone is turning a knob on an oscilloscope,?
then if he's carefully adjusting it, he is probably tweaking it; if he?
is just turning it but looking at the screen, he is probably twiddling?
it; but if he's just doing it because turning a knob is fun, he's?
frobbing it. The variant `frobnosticate' has been recently reported.
