    compromise - definition of compromise by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia. - look at definition 1a of the transitive verb. See my amendments to your post above.

    Thank you, I've already checked its definitions, but I just can't understand what this sentence means.

    Thanks for corrections.

    Re: To compromise

    Since I don't understand the context, I can't really say what the whole sentence means. It sounds like it's something to do with computers perhaps. The basic meaning is that if this code has a specific undesirable effect, it will negatively affect the future use of the code.
