-Structured, logical text document destined to be compiled to create a piece of computer software.

-Structured text document refusing to be compiled to create a piece of computer software.

-Stupid text document refusing to be compiled to create an elusive piece of computer software.

-Why won't this fucking piece of shit compile correctly for fuck's sake.

-Text document stored on the hard drive of a computer found smashed in the street.

A file containing instructions (following a particular language syntax, such as C, C++, or Perl) that define the operation of a program or part of a program. Usually written in text, these files must be compiled/linked or interpreted by separate tools in order to produce an actual functioning program.

int main()
printf("Hello, world!\n");
return 0;
