Definitions for stubroutine

Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word stubroutine.


  1. Stubroutine

    A stubroutine is a command script or program subroutine which does nothing but return a constant value. They are used during program development, where the functional implementation of routines is delayed while other routines are developed. This is also one of the techniques used by the software pirating community to bypass callbacks and license-checking code: the target program is disassembled and the appropriate code is substituted for a null subroutine that just returns the value expected by the caller.
