(pāj) (n.) (1) A fixed amount of data.

(2) In word processing, a page of text. Most text-processing applications recognize a hierarchy of components, starting with a character at the lowest level, followed by a word, a line, a paragraph, and a page. Applications permit certain operations for each type of component; for example, you can delete a character, a word, a line, and sometimes an entire page. For pages, you can also specify formatting characteristics (for example, page size, margins, and number of columns).

(3) In virtual memory systems, a page is a fixed number of bytes recognized by the operating system.

(4) Short for Web page.

(v.) (1) To display one page (or screenful) of a document at a time. To contrast, see scroll.

(2) To copy a page of data from main memory to a mass storage device, or vice versa. Paging is one form of swapping.
