Input/Output

Definition:

Input/Output: The data being input into a program (from file, network or keyboard) and the output generated by a program (written to file, network or screen). IO is one of the core features of any programming language since without any way to communicate with any users, gather data or report results a programming language isn't of much use.

Also Known As: i/o or IO
