flarp in Technology

/flarp/ [Rutgers University] Yet another metasyntactic variable (see foo). Among those who use it, it is associated with a legend that any program not containing the word "flarp" somewhere will not work. The legend is discreetly silent on the reliability of programs which *do* contain the magic word.
