Why was "tantrum" trending last week?
(From "dimension") A keyword in most versions of the BASIC programming language that declares the size of an array. E.g.
declares a one-dimensional array with 101 numeric elements (including A(0)).
Visual Basic uses the DIM (or "Dim") statement for any variable declaration, even scalars, e.g.
Dim DepartmentNumber As Integer
which declares a single (scalar) variable of type Integer.
