tweak /vt./ 1. To change slightly, usually in reference to a
value. Also used synonymously with twiddle. If a program is
almost correct, rather than figure out the precise problem you
might just keep tweaking it until it works. See frobnicate
and fudge factor; also see shotgun debugging. 2. To
tune or bum a program; preferred usage in the U.K.
