comment Word for something made of two parts
@Kris in this technical case the use of composite fits because "composite possesses properties not achievable with any of its individual constituent elements alone"

@JimiOke Binary composite would definitely work though.

comment Word for something made of two parts
This is a great word for it I'm going to accept this if nothing else comes up soon. How did I not think of this word?

Doesn't that imply some kind of direction?

But this is a mixture of two discrete entities. Whilst a mixture of red and blue ping-pong balls is a 'blend' it's different to a continuous mixture of say, water and fruit juice.

comment Synonym of 'Run' or 'Operate' in the context of a computer programme
The script in question is running the program for several iteration, each time executing the same piece of code, until a full run of executions is made. I think that phrasing makes more sense (as it does in my work), than just using run. Thanks for the graph though, I love nGrams +1!

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Hopefully that's what my program will be.

comment Repetition of hyphen in shared prefixes
I did a search for hyphenation and conjugation before I posted this, nothing relevant came up. If you think you have a better title that still describes my problem, @FumbleFingers, feel free to edit it into one.
