Re: "Persist" as a transitive verb? <gack!>
Has anyone run into cases of "persist" being used as a transitive verb? The context is a white paper, written by a software engineer, for a
technical audience. The phrase is referring to information that "must be
persisted." <Ack! Ptoie!>
I have no intention of letting this stand unchallenged, but I'd like to
hear if anyone has some alternatives to offer.
