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.

There are many languages for creating simple text filters in Unix, like sed, awk, and perl.

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.

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 attached at the end of a tobacco rod that assists reduction in the smoke yield to the smoker.
A fibrous material wound to the diameter of a cigarette and bound to the cigarette in such a manner as to filter out excess amounts of tar in cigarette smoke. Filters are designed to reduce the amount of smoke reaching the smoker. Most are made from a textile fibre – cellulose. It has no taste, and is firm enough to hold its shape. Along with other design elements such as ventilation, different filters can result in different yields of tar and nicotine, resulting in different strengths of the taste of the smoke. Native American Cigarettes use all natural cotton filters.

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.

If you imagine your website gets 1000 surfers per day... You could just show those 1000 surfers an advert for a paysite, where you'd be paid commission on anything those surfers bought. But you could go one step further and try to find out what each of those surfers was really interested in. Obviously you can't physically ask each surfer what turns them on the most, so you need to offer links on your website which get the surfers making choices. Filtering is about working with any kind of website traffic and making the most of it - getting a surfer to a page they're really interested in, and having ads there EXACTLY matching their interests. To filter is to offer choices to a surfer with the overall aim being to increase sales.
