Term of the Day:

mode
insert mode
overstrike

The state or setting of a program or device. For example, when a word processor is in insert mode, characters that you type are inserted at the cursor position. In overstrike mode, characters typed replace existing characters.

The term mode implies a choice -- that you can change the setting and put the system in a different mode.
