Meaning of HUNG

Pronunciation:  hung

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

["hung up"] Equivalent to wedged, but more common at Unix/C sites. Not generally used of people. Synonym with locked up, wedged; compare hosed. See also hang. A hung state is distinguished from crashed or down, where the program or system is also unusable but because it is not running rather than because it is waiting for something. However, the recovery from both situations is often the same.
