Jacquard loom


 
<history> /zhah-kar'/ A mechanical loom, invented by
Joseph-Marie Jacquard in 1801, which used the holes punched
in pasteboard punch cards (which see) to control the weaving
of patterns in fabric.  It was the first machine to use punch
cards, although it did no computation based on them.
