Subject:Re: Performant - is it a word From:Chris Kowalchuk <chris -at- BDK -dot- NET> Date:Tue, 8 Jun 1999 09:48:48 -0400
What is the word supposed to mean? Unless it has some special meaning
(in which case, I suppose it is acceptable to coin a new word), then it
can probably be replaced by the more standard "performing", or, if I
guess your context right, "does or does not work."
