In tEr fes: A boundary across which systems communicate.

  • a surface forming a common boundary of two bodies, spaces, phases or regions.
  • the place at which independent and often unrelated systems meet and act on or communicate with each other <the man-machine interface>
  • the point at which communication between machines or systems can be connected.
  • the means by which interaction or communication is achieved at an interface. A device to interact or communicate with another system component.
  • the point at which the operation of different systems or the interests of different groups overlap.
  • a situation, way or area in which two things or groups can come together and have an effect on each other.
  • the overlap where two theories or phenomena affect each other or have links with each other.
  • a boundary or point common to two or more similar or dissimilar command and control systems, sub-systems, or other entities against which or at which necessary information flow takes place.
  • the communication between a calling program and a subroutine.
  • the physical or logical connection between a computer and the user, a peripheral device, or a communications link.
  • a program that controls a display for the user and that allows the user to interact with the system [syn: {user interface}]
  • graphical user interface: (GUI) a computer program that enables a person to communicate with a computer through the use of symbols, visual metaphors, and pointing devices. The GUI is now the standard computer interface, and its components have become cultural artifacts.
  • the equipment or programs used to communicate between different systems or programs. Hardware and associated circuitry that links one device with another The link between parts of a computer system, or between two different systems varies from a simple cable connection to an "intelligent" device which translates protocol. An interface can be between hardware and hardware, hardware and software, software and software, and human and computer [syn: {port}]
Port: (Math.) A process of demonstration in which a general truth is gathered from an examination of particular cases, one of which is known to be true, the examination being so conducted that each case is made to depend on the preceding one; -- called also {successive induction}.

Surface \Sur"face`\, n. [F. See {Sur-}, and {Face}, and cf. {Superficial}.] 1. The exterior part of anything that has length and breadth; one of the limits that bound a solid, esp. the upper face; superficies; the outside; as, the surface of the earth; the surface of the body.

"The bright surface of this ethereous mold."

"The easy menu interaction views cooked data through predefined windows"
