Definitions vary accordingly to the amount of time spent working on the source code:

-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.
