in computer parlance, 4 bits or a mixture of 4 1's and 0's. Derived from IBM's term for 8 bits = 1 byte. A nybble is 1/2 byte
Bill, a Systems Analyst, was trying to locate the reason for a computer crash by examining a RAM dump. He scrutinized a particular nybble as a possible cause.

Har har, computer programmers have a sense of humor. It stands to reason that anything less than a byte would be a nybble.

n.
Half of a byte or 4 bits. Used to conserve space for anything using numbers 0-15.

Also spelled "nibble" though the original spelling was with a "y."
Eh, we don't need need to use a whole byte for that, it only takes a nybble.

nybble, or 4 bits, or 1 hexit:(all = 1 half a byte)
After a byte is a kilobyte wich is actually 1,024 bytes(2,048 nybbles).
And the list goes on in the aspect that each unit up equals 1,024 of the previous i.e. 1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte. This is the scale up to the highest measurement I know: bit, nybble, byte, kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte, terabyte, petabyte, exabyte, zettabyte, yottabyte, bronobyte, nisabyte, and zotzabyte.
nintendo was an 8-bit system. So it was a 2 hexit or 2 nybble machine.
