facility allowing subsequent commands to operate only on records that conform to specified criteria. [D00678] WST
A program or feature that lets users sort through data by specifying selection criteria.
Software the blocks or sorts incoming e-mailing, based on criteria regarding message headers, from addresses, or content.
A type of program especially common in Unix in which a file or other data stream (by default, the standard input) is read serially, modified in some regular way, and sent (in modified form) to some other file or stream (by default, the standard output), without any change to the original data source. There are many languages for creating simple text filters in Unix, like sed, awk, and perl.
A programming idea/paradigm/ idiom whereby an application provides the functionality of reading its input, massaging it in some manner, and then producing output, typically making use of stdin and stdout file handle

A program that transforms a data set in some way without altering the fundamental structure of the data.
A program or feature that lets users sort through data. Filters typically refer to e-mail programs used to send e-mail messages to a particular mail folder.
A software program that accepts incoming data, processes it based on programmable criteria, and then moves it to the next appropriate location for action. For example, when you fill out an airlines survey on-line, you click on certain options that indicate your travel habits (Click here if you fly internationally more than six times a year). The filter sifts through the half million survey responses and sends all respondents who fly overseas more than six times a year to the next program down the pipeline, in order to service that level of customer. E-mail programs can allow you to use filters to automatically route e-mails to certain folders based on the sender's information or even to delete e-mails that include certain subject lines.
An e-mail feature that allows users to either kill e-mail or channel it to a special folder.
a filter allows the user to set certain e-mail addresses (or even certain words) as flags to either trash or place certain addresses in particular mailboxes. For example, in order to cut down on the amount of spam messages I receive, I have created a filter on the word sex. If I receive an e-mail with that word in either the addresses or subject line, the e-mail is automatically placed in the trash directory.
PLUG-IN for an image-editing program such as Photoshop, which is designed to produce a certain effect. For example, filters may be designed to blur or sharpen an image, or to create special effects such as motion trails or fractal patterns.
Used to apply special effects to an image.
A function for special effects. It is possible to apply a filter to artwork to achieve many different looks that would be difficult with manual drawing techniques. There is a concern over excessive use of filters creating artwork that is too complex to output.
A piece of software that an application uses for file-format conversion or special effects. PageMaker, for example, has a filter that lets it import Microsoft Word files, while Photoshop has dozens of filters for special effects (such as image blurring). Filters can be part of the main application or external programs called plug-ins.
See UBE filter, Allow filter, Deny filter.
An online process that is called by Faris every time a user makes a request to access a URL. Being in action, the Filter first checks if the URL is defined in Faris database. If so, it either allows access to the URL, or blocks any response from it, depending on the status defined for the URL in the database. On the other hand, if the URL is not defined in the database, the Filter checks the contents of the requested URLs against certain keywords in order to determine whether the requested URL is to be Allowed or Blocked.
A filter manages access to online content. A filter can restrict times when the Internet can be accessed and also restrict what is viewed and downloaded. Some filters can also be instructed to specifically block information from being displayed. Types of filters range from home filters to filters used by a school on its server.
Software that sorts information on the Internet and classifies it according to content. Some filtering software allows the user to block certain kinds of information on the Internet. See also Blocking software, Client-based filter, and Server-based filter.
Operating parameter used in LAN bridges and routers. When set, the filter causes bridges and routers to block transfer of packets between LANs. The term "filter" also applies to a hardware device, such as a microfilter. When installed, this device reduces interference between DSL signals and telephone signals.
A device in theory or practice that takes a signal string which is undefined in terms of scale and converts it by a process of integration into a scaled message (Allen and Starr 1982) A filter is always associated with the surface of higher level entity (holon)(Kolasa and Rollo 1991). Rapid dynamics of lower level systems can be said to be filtered out at the higher level and to become constants or boundary conditions.
Device installed between a telephone and the wall jack which filters the noise interference caused by DSL signals.
A filter typically separates signals of different bandwidths. ADSL uses a filter to separate the voice component of the signal on the copper cable into the home from the Internet communications signal. Hence, it is possible to use the one telephone line entering a home to carry normal voice telephone conversations and broadband Internet without any interference between the two.
Hardware or software designed to restrict access to certain areas on the Internet.
Analyze individual messages for spam content.
Filter is a software application that is used to filter out web pages that use spam for promotion of pages.

A command on the Manage Bins form and the Get From Project Library form that allows you to search for a specific part.
Filters allow you to scan incoming tickets and then automatically set the assigned user, priority and category. Filters are sometimes called business rules.
A Webguru filter is a mechanism that allows you to narrow your report to certain aspects. For example, with filters you could build a report of visitors from Google. The report would be like every other report, except that all non-Google visitors will be ignored. More informations about filters
An advanced search tool that allows you to set rules to narrow your search. The iWon Advanced Search page includes a word filter.
The filter option, if set to true, when running a blast, will allow you to mask out various segments of the query sequence for regions which are non-specific for sequence similarity searches. Filtering can eliminate statistically significant but biologically uninteresting reports from the output, for example hits against common acidic-, basic- or proline-rich regions, leaving the more biologically interesting regions of the query sequence available for specific matching against database sequences. Filtering is only applied to the query sequence, not to database sequences. The program used for this, with nucleotide query sequences is known as DUST written by Tatusov, R. L., and Lipman, D.J. The SEG program is used for filtering low complexity regions in amino acid sequences from your protein query sequence and was written by Wootton, J.C., and Federhen, S.
A constraint applied to a directory query that restricts the information returned.
To show only certain records from a table. A filter in Access can also include sorting information. A filter is not stored in the Database window while a query is.
A type of database query. See Database
To include in an analysis only a certain category of respondents. Notice that this is the opposite in meaning to "filter out"; thus a table headed "filtered to age 35-plus" means that only respondents aged 35 and over are included.
Facility that tests every server transaction to see if certain conditions are met and responds to the conditions by taking a specific action or actions. The AR System administrator can define filters that set fields to specified values, run independent system processes, send an interactive message to the user, notify the user when the state of an AR changes, or make an entry in an audit trail log. Filters run on the server.
When only a section of the total sample are required to answer the question, e.g. if the question asks why people are dissatisfied with a particular service, only those who are dissatisfied should answer the question. Those who are satisfied will skip to the next question that is to be asked of all respondents.
A filter question determines the route taken through a questionnaire by a respondent. For example, the question "What is your occupation?" could be preceded by the filter question "Do you have an occupation?" Those who answered No would be filtered out, and not asked the question about their occupation. Similar concept to a screener questionnaire.
A mathematical routine that alters the price series. This may be achieved by measuring the movement of price around a moving average that smoothes the price data to remove noise. Alternatively filters may be used in developing trading rules to eliminate loss making trades. 5-3-5 (Elliott Wave) This is a method of referring to a simple ABC pattern that is comprised of five-wave waves A and C divided by a three-wave wave B. The diagram shows this pattern.
Set of instructions that 'filter' out and display only the information being looked for from large amount of data. Often used with database and DOS programmers.
A method to emphasize information important to you by removing unnecessary information from the report. For example, instead of looking at the total sales picture, you can view sales for a specific region, product line, or demographic market without deleting data in the report.
A method of qualifying data, usually data that you are seeking. Filters are always expressed as DNs, for example: cn=susie smith,o=acme,c=us.
