parametric programming

parametric programming

[¦par·ə¦me·trik ′prō‚gram·iŋ]
(computer science)
A programming approach in which data are stored in external tables or files, rather than within the program itself, and accessed by the program when needed, so that the values of these data can be changed with relative ease.
