I am a computer programmer and I come across the word "default" a lot, usually a statement would say:
Default A to B, and I understand it as follows:
A has the value B by default
is this a correct understanding? What is the difference between this statement and
Default A from B
to explain more, consider the following paragraph:
The user clicks on the registration link, fills in his personal details (Name, address..), clicks the "Next" button, the account owner details page will be displayed. There is an "account owner name" field and a "default account owner to the user's name" link, if the user clicks on this link, default the "account owner name" field to the current user name.
Does the last sentence in the paragraph mean "set the value of the 'account owner name' to be the current user name" or Does it mean "get the current user name value and set it into the 'account owner name'"?
