encode

[en′kōd]
(communications)
To express given information by means of a code.
(computer science)
To prepare a routine in machine language for a specific computer.

encode

(algorithm, hardware)
To convert data or some physical quantity into a given format. E.g. uuencode.

See also encoder.

encode

(cryptography)
To encrypt, to perform encryption.

encode

(1) To assign a code to represent data, such as a parts code. Contrast with decode. See encoding system.

(2) To convert from one format or signal to another. See codec and D/A converter.

(3) The term is sometimes erroneously used for "encrypt." However, encoded data are not secretly scrambled and can be decoded easily. See cryptography.
