IDE

IDE Abbrev. for interactive development environment.
1. A suite of programs for program or application development with a common user interface, often a graphical user interface, and including software tools for code writing and editing, compilation, execution, and debugging with an easy and consistent way of moving between the various functions.

2. Abbrev. for integrated device electronics. A hard disk drive controller unit that resides on the drive itself, doing away with the need for a separate add-in card. It provides a method of interfacing hard disk drives to PCs using the ISA bus originally developed for the IBM PC AT in 1986. It is a system-level interface in that it makes no assumptions about the disk hardware but accepts a stream of formatted data. IDE disk drives are installed in most home PCs. See also EIDE.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
