RIP

(1) (rip) To convert optical media into a totally electronic format. See ripping.

(2) (Raster Image Processor) The hardware and/or software that prepares data for display or printing. See rasterize. See also image processor.

(3) (Routing Information Protocol) A simple routing protocol that is part of the TCP/IP protocol suite. It determines a route based on the smallest hop count between source and destination. RIP is a distance vector protocol that routinely broadcasts routing information to its neighboring routers and is known to waste bandwidth. It also has a limit of 15 hops. If a route is advertised as having 16 hops, it is flagged as unreachable. All earlier networks (AppleTalk, NetWare, VINES, DECnet) used their own incompatible versions of RIP. See routing protocol.

(4) (Remote Imaging Protocol) An earlier graphics format from TeleGrafix Communications, designed for transmitting graphics over low-speed lines. Using a communications program that supported RIP enabled graphical interfaces to be used on a BBS with respectable performance via modem.
