I'm looking for the origin of the verb "Blatting" / "Blat", I have only ever heard this word used in the context of complete removal of data from either a database or web form. e.g.
"Lets completely blat the table row and see if our query still runs"
"Blatting the login form causes an exception"
I original thought it was slang specific to the team I am working for however since then I have heard it used by other software engineers both in and outside of the company.
Is this word widely used? Where does it come from? and maybe more importantly what does it actually mean?
