    is passed

    Hi,
    What does "is passed" mean here?


    This module is called upon by the relevance feedback module at the end of a relevance feedback session, and is passed the expert knowledge captured by the session. The knowledge is codified into a non-uniform sized matrix, or rather an array of arrays. Each row (or array) specifies the serial number of a single group of fingerprints.

    Thanks

    Re: is passed

    Some expert knowledge is captured by the session. This expert knowledge is passed to the module. = "The module is passed the expert knowledge."
    It's an uncommon construction. "The second runner in a relay race is passed the baton by the first runner."

    In that case, Ted, why not wait until somebody to whom it does make sense has a chance to answer?

    This analogy is simple enough but in this case, it is not clear who passed the expert knowledge to who. How can "a module" pass knowledge?

    Note that I am posting this as a learner and not trying to give my opinion.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: is passed

    This is obviously a computer program.
    This module (which has obviously been recently mentioned, and I will call "the module")is called upon by the relevance feedback module at the end of a relevance feedback session. (The feedback module calls the module.) That module is then passed the expert knowledge that was captured during the session (by the feedback module, one would guess). The knowledge is then processed either by the module, or the module calls another function to do this.

    If this is about the workings of an Expert System, 'expert knowledge' is by necessity captured by some module/function/component of the software, which then arranges its processing.
    How can my computer pass my knowledge to your computer?
