abi - c's definition of abi differs

12.22: mis.adda/abi/c's definition of abi differs:
. in c culture, the abi(app binary interface)
has meant an interface between apps and
binary library units vs source libraries .
. my definition of ABI has been a system of
cross-app communication using a binary language
rather than a exchanging text like unix .
. for instance, see standard ABIs motivation:
"( the editor and every command processor
will all speak the system language:
the system's language describes
a mathematical function
as either a set of points or a formula
along with a type specification that includes
a domain and codomain;
with an optional subdomain and inverse operator ).
