  • Delete: dictdefs fail the deletion guidelines, and I've got to wonder if anyone uses this term, either. I didn't get a computer science degree, but this seems pretty fringe. Geogre 00:06, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Appears to be linked to on telnet. Norm 00:23, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. I've never heard the term but RFC documents use it, according to telnet article and google turns out 14,800 hits. Not sure whether this can be expanded but there is no obvious place to merge, either. Andris 01:46, Sep 10, 2004 (UTC)
  • General question for voters: Can/shall this expand beyond dictdef? Just seems like that's really where it falls at present. Geogre 04:29, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. In what dictionary are you going to look for this "dicdef"? It is technical term. The article will be expanded. Mikkalai 05:12, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep technical term in common use for communications protocols, files and streams. The Steve 07:27, Sep 10, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Potential for expansion, and the move from word oriented computers to byte oriented ones was interesting enough to write about. Prumpf 14:58, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Valid topic. Gwalla | Talk 22:27, 11 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Move to Wictionary - not enough for an article. --Improv 05:51, 14 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Byte orientation vs byte order[edit]

“Byte orientation” is also a (quite rarely used) synonym of the byte order. May be, it would be appropriate to merge this article with Byte-oriented protocol and lo leave here a disambig to both that terms only. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 05:36, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
