I believe 'depracated' is some kind of programming lingo, WHAT does it mean? :devil: My bf keeps commenting that stuff, like the spinach he's cooking right now, is 'depracated'.

It means it used to work, still works, but it's been replaced and we don't like it so it might go away in the future.

Ah, so it means the spinach is old? :grumpy:
So actually it 'should be depracated', not 'is depracated'..

Depracate is just another word for depreciate. In programming terms, obsolete functions/objects are depracated/depreciated when they are no longer needed. I guess your bf doesn't like spinach.

No, we bought the spinach a week ago.. it's old :wink:

Still.. it's just not right to use that word in daily live, the other day we had 'depracated flowers' and 'depracated paksoi'.. at first I thought he meant desiccated :rolleyes:

In programming terms, when something (typically a class or library routine) is 'deprecated,' it is an indication that it has been replaced by something better. Often, the newer version just uses more consistent syntax, or a better model. The old version is left intact so that old programs will still compile and work, but is marked as deprecated. When the compiler encounters a new program that uses the old version, it warns the programmer that he/she should use the new version instead.
