packet


 
The unit of data sent across a network.  "Packet" is a
generic term used to describe a unit of data at any layer of
the OSI protocol stack, but it is most correctly used to
describe application layer data units ("{application 
protocol data unit}", APDU).
 
See also datagram, frame.

I&# 39; d basically like to find someone to practice my English with or who would like to practice Spanish. :) I also like Russian and French, which are languages I don&# 39; t fully understand but would like to learn.
