Computer software (or simply software) refers to one or more computer programs and data held in the storage of a computer for some purpose. ... Hardware is the general term that is used to describe physical artifacts of a technology. ...


Using AFP, users can control formatting, the form of paper output, whether a document is to be printed or viewed online, and manage document storage and access in a distributed network across multiple operating system platforms. AFP is primarily used in large enterprises with printer rooms and expensive high-speed printers. A computer network is a system for communication between computers. ...

AFP applications allow users or print room operators to distribute print jobs among a group of printers and to designate backup printers when one fails.

AFP consists of

  • MO:DCA-P (Mixed Object:Document Content Architecture-Presentation), the Page Description Language fileformat that describes the text and graphics on a page. The 'Mixed Object' moniker refers to the fact that AFPDS can contain multiple types of objects, including text, images and even objects marked as 'barcodes'. An application can simply include a string of digits marked as a specific type of barcode, and the rendering of bars will be done on the output platform (physical printer hardware or software emulation). AFPDS is comparable to PDF or PostScript, though PostScript can also include job specific information that drives printer options such as input tray selection.
  • IPDS Intelligent Printer Data Stream. This is the bi-directional protocol used between the host and the printer. It is used to send the pagelevel data (AFPDS) and to signal errors and completion of jobs, as well as to query a printers available resources (e.g. available memory, input trays, etc.) It's comparable to protocols like Internet Printing Protocol.

MO:DCA-P is sometimes called AFPDS (AFP Data Stream). Some MO:DCA-P "objects" are IOCA, GOCA and BCOCA; Image-, Graphics- and Bar Code- Object Content Architecture.

Mesothelioma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3676 words)
For pleural fluid this is done by a pleural tap or chest drain, in ascites with an paracentesis or ascitic drain and in a pericardial effusion with pericardiocentesis.
It is classified as advanced if it has spread beyond the original membrane surface to other parts of the body, such as the lymph nodes, lungs, chest wall, or abdominal organs.
The clinical behaviour of the malignancy is affected by several factors including the continuous mesothelial surface of the pleural cavity which favours local metastasis via exfoliated cells, invasion to underlying tissue and other organs within the pleural cavity, and the extremely long latency period between asbestos exposure and development of the disease.
