What’s In Them Guts?
Computers are collections of hardware electrified into life and they make it possible to execute logical tasks billions, or even trillions of times per second.
I/O – Input/Output is what computerized tasks are based upon. An input is provided and an Output may or may not be expected, but that’s about it. The computer’s user is one source of input, such as keystrokes, voice, tactic movements, etc.. There are numerous other types of input as well, such as communications between programs, a variety of sensor data, specialized electrical signals, just about anything you can imagine can possibly be an input that you provide to a computer.
Output is what the computer returns to you for a given input. If you feed a pdf file as an input into the printer, you’re going to get a print as an output. If you type on the keyboard, the computer will produce characters on the display as an output. The input/output relationship is central to the computing paradigm.
