Meaning of CONSTANT FOLDING

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A compiler optimisation technique where constant subexpressions are evaluated at compile time. This is usually only applied to built-in numerical and boolean operators whereas partial evaluation is more general in that expressions involving user-defined functions may also be evaluated at compile time.
