 SLOP n. 1. A one-sided fudge factor (q.v.). Often introduced to avoid
       the possibility of a fencepost error (q.v.). 2. (used by compiler
       freaks) The ratio of code generated by a compiler to hand-compiled
       code, minus 1; i.e., the space (or maybe time) you lose because you
       didn't do it yourself.
