    Berkeley Quality Software

    Berkeley Quality Software: adj.

    (often abbreviated "BQS") Term used in a pejorative sense to refer to software that was apparently created by rather spaced-out hackers late at night to solve some unique problem. It usually has nonexistent, incomplete, or incorrect documentation, has been tested on at least two examples, and core dumps when anyone else attempts to use it. This term was frequently applied to early versions of the dbx(1) debugger. See also Berzerkeley.

    Note to British and Commonwealth readers: that's /berk´lee/, not /bark´lee/ as in British Received Pronunciation.
