1. n. [MIT; very common] The TMRC
definition was "FROB = a protruding arm or trunnion"; by metaphoric extension, a `frob' is any random small thing; an object that you can comfortably hold in one hand; something you can frob (sense 2). See frobnitz
2. vt. Abbreviated form of frobnicate
3. [from the MUD
world] A command on some MUDs that changes a player's experience level (this can be used to make wizards); also, to request wizard
privileges on the `professional courtesy' grounds that one is a wizard elsewhere. The command is actually `frobnicate' but is universally abbreviated to the shorter form.
