Static has several meanings:

In computer science[edit]

  • Static code analysis, a set of methods for analyzing code without running it
  • Some network resources/terms may be "static", meaning that they do not change automatically (and are configured manually). These include:
    • Static IP address, an address configured on a device which is configured manually (therefore the address is not likely to change frequently)
    • Static route, a network route specified by local configuration, rather than being automatically determined by protocols that automatically assign routes
  • Static linking, where identifiers are associated with data or sections of code during linking not run-time
  • Static logic, digital logic which does not use a clock signal
    • Static core, a CPU entirely implemented in static logic
  • Static memory allocation, carried out at compile time
  • Static method, a method of a class that does not need an explicit object reference
  • Static random access memory, a type of semiconductor memory which retains its contents as long as power is applied
  • Static typing, where type checking is applied at compile-time, not run-time
  • Static variables may be constants, local function variables, or class variables depending on the context, variables that are common to all objects
  • Static web design, which offers a layout that cannot adapt to viewer needs
