threading A programming technique used in some code generators in which the “code” consists of a sequence of entry points of routines. The threaded code is interpreted by executing an unconditional branch to the destination indicated by a word of the code; on completion the routine thus activated terminates by again executing an unconditional branch to the entry point indicated by the next code word. See also single threading, multithreading.
