Temporological

Not many hits come up in search engines for the word ‘temporological’. Nothing like ‘psychophysiological’, for example.

But I did think of a reason to make such a compound today. I was thinking about how in software code*, for a given ‘location’ in the code (line number, basic block, etc.), there are a set of temporal and logical conditions that hold there. For example, “after this line in this block, the Person object has been created and all its fields are null”.

I’m kinda fascinated by that aspect of programming, but I can’t explain precisely why yet…

* I normally wouldn’t use a weird phrase like “software code”, but I didn’t want to say just “code”, and I didn’t want to say just “software”. Huh.
