An ideogram once used in
some computer contexts, meaning symbol has been found. The ideogram is a
combination of for see, and for one entity or
something definite or absolute, placed within the circle
of unlimited possibilities. Note that here is
combined with in such a way that it becomes ,
the exclamation mark, meaning that's it, thus denoting that the
seeing is finished, that the search is over.
Henry Dreyfuss (see bibliography) presented these and a large number of other ideograms from the world of early computer processing in his 1972 work Symbol Sourcebook. Most of them have not been included in this dictionary because the use of them was never well-established.
