For example:

"Form A" is able to anticipate any kind of input. Like, can take in Japanese characters, block illegal characters, and any other sort of characters. Hence, "Form A" is _____ble.

Basically, i am trying to replicate something like:

  • "Superman is able to withstand a super nova. Hence, he is invincible."
  • "David saved a kitten. Hence, he is admirable."
  • "Rob was a able to solve the problem. Hence, the problem is solvable."

If there is not really any word, any other suggestions?

  • Form A is omniscient.

Form A is able to anticipate any kind of input, hence it is universal.


Usually one says that the method/process is robust.

  • Note that this is computer science jargon, and so it means something slightly different to how 'robust' is used in general English. It will probably get the point across, though, for all but a close reader.

  • Not just computer scientists, many engineers and statisticians will probably get it.

  • Why does one usually say that? Commented Feb 16, 2016 at 10:40
  • The wikipedia page for 'robust' explicitly references handling unusual and expected inputs: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robustness_(computer_science)
