TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I just looked at the article on the PowerPC bus in the Oct 94 IEEE Micro. It
uses "assert" a dozen times or so. It does not use de-assert. It does not
use any of the alternatives that others on this list have proposed.
Assert is a commonly used term. De-assert is not. ...RM
