1. (From {BASIC}'s "CHAIN" statement) To
pass control to a child or successor without going through the
{operating system} {command interpreter} that invoked you.
The state of the parent program is lost and there is no
returning to it. Though this facility used to be common on
memory-limited {microcomputers} and is still widely supported
for {backward compatibility}, the jargon usage is
semi-obsolescent; in particular, {Unix} calls this {exec}.

Compare with the more modern "{subshell}".

2. A series of linked data areas within an
{operating system} or {application program}. "Chain rattling"
is the process of repeatedly running through the linked data
areas searching for one which is of interest. The implication
is that there are many links in the chain.

3. A possibly infinite, non-decreasing sequence of
elements of some {total ordering}, S

x0 <= x1 <= x2 ...

A chain satisfies:

for all x,y in S, x <= y \/ y <= x.

I.e. any two elements of a chain are related.

("<=" is written in {LaTeX} as {\sqsubseteq}).

[{Jargon File}]


chain 1. vi. [orig. from BASIC's
CHAIN statement] To hand off execution to a
child or successor without going through the OS
command interpreter that invoked it. The state of the parent program is
lost and there is no returning to it. Though this facility used to be
common on memory-limited micros and is still widely supported for backward
compatibility, the jargon usage is semi-obsolescent; in particular, most
Unix programmers will think of this as an exec.
Oppose the more modern subshell.

(1.) A part of the insignia of office. A chain of gold was
placed about Joseph's neck (Gen. 41:42); and one was promised to
Daniel (5:7). It is used as a symbol of sovereignty (Ezek.
16:11). The breast-plate of the high-priest was fastened to the
ephod by golden chains (Ex. 39:17, 21).

(2.) It was used as an ornament (Prov. 1:9; Cant. 1:10). The
Midianites adorned the necks of their camels with chains (Judg.
8:21, 26).

(3.) Chains were also used as fetters wherewith prisoners were
bound (Judg. 16:21; 2 Sam. 3:34; 2 Kings 25:7; Jer. 39:7). Paul
was in this manner bound to a Roman soldier (Acts 28:20; Eph.
6:20; 2 Tim. 1:16). Sometimes, for the sake of greater security,
the prisoner was attached by two chains to two soldiers, as in
the case of Peter (Acts 12:6).
