 DWIM [Do What I Mean] 1. adj. Able to guess, sometimes even
       correctly, what result was intended when provided with bogus input.
       Often suggested in jest as a desired feature for a complex program. A
       related term, more often seen as a verb, is DTRT (Do The Right Thing).
       2. n. The INTERLISP function that attempts to accomplish this feat by
       correcting many of the more common errors. See HAIRY.
