Meaning of HACKED UP

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

Sufficiently patched, kluged, and tweaked that the surgical scars are beginning to crowd out normal tissue (compare critical mass). Not all programs that are hacked become "hacked up"; if modifications are done with some eye to coherence and continued maintainability, the software may emerge better for the experience.

Contrast hack up.

[jargon file]
