What is a compilation?
Compilation is a word that came to our language from Latin, where it means robbery. This concept is used in literary studies, accounting and programming.
How to understand what compilation is
- In literary criticism, it means an essay in which the author uses the works of others without analyzing and processing them, and does not refer to the original sources. A synonym is the word "plagiarism".
- In programming - translation from programming language to machine. As a result, a file containing external links is formed.
- In accounting - the collection of information on the financial activities of the organization with a view to its further synthesis and classification, the preparation of financial reports in the process of auditing activities.
