Use your favorite search engine to find the hackers jargon dictionary
For example:

| no-op /noh'op/ alt. NOP /nop/ [no operation] n. 1. (also v.) A machine
| instruction that does nothing (sometimes used in assembler-level
| programming as filler for data or patch areas, or to overwrite code to
| be removed in binaries). See also {JFCL}. 2. A person who contributes
| nothing to a project, or has nothing going on upstairs, or both. As in
| "He's a no-op." 3. Any operation or sequence of operations with no
| effect, such as circling the block without finding a parking space, or
| putting money into a vending machine and having it fall immediately into
| the coin-return box, or asking someone for help and being told to go
| away. "Oh, well, that was a no-op." Hot-and-sour soup (see {great-wall})
| that is insufficiently either is `no-op soup'; so is wonton soup if
| everybody else is having hot-and-sour.
