Never mind... dict.org handles that too. I should have checked first.
/nod'ee/ [UK: from the children's books] 1. Small and
un-useful, but demonstrating a point. Noddy programs are
often written by people learning a new language or system.
The archetypal noddy program is hello, world. Noddy code
may be used to demonstrate a feature or bug of a compiler.
May be used of real hardware or software to imply that it
isn't worth using. "This editor's a bit noddy."
2. A program that is more or less instant to produce. In this
use, the term does not necessarily connote uselessness, but
describes a hack sufficiently trivial that it can be written
and debugged while carrying on (and during the space of) a
normal conversation. "I'll just throw together a noddy awk
script to dump all the first fields." In North America this
might be called a mickey mouse program. See toy program.
Actually, which one did you mean?
