Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  hook n. A software or hardware feature included in order to simplify
     later additions or changes by a user. For example, a simple program that
     prints numbers might always print them in base 10, but a more flexible
     version would let a variable determine what base to use; setting the
     variable to 5 would make the program print numbers in base 5. The
     variable is a simple hook. An even more flexible program might examine
     the variable and treat a value of 16 or less as the base to use, but
     treat any other number as the address of a user-supplied routine for
     printing a number. This is a hairy but powerful hook; one can then
     write a routine to print numbers as Roman numerals, say, or as Hebrew
     characters, and plug it into the program through the hook. Often the
     difference between a good program and a superb one is that the latter
     has useful hooks in judiciously chosen places. Both may do the original
     job about equally well, but the one with the hooks is much more flexible
     for future expansion of capabilities ({EMACS, for example, is _all_
     hooks). The term `user exit' is synonymous but much more formal and less
     hackish.

Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Hook
     (1.) Heb. hah, a "ring" inserted in the nostrils of animals to
     which a cord was fastened for the purpose of restraining them (2
     Kings 19:28; Isa. 37:28, 29; Ezek. 29:4; 38:4). "The Orientals
     make use of this contrivance for curbing their
     work-beasts...When a beast becomes unruly they have only to draw
     the cord on one side, which, by stopping his breath, punishes
     him so effectually that after a few repetitions he fails not to
     become quite tractable whenever he begins to feel it"
     (Michaelis). So God's agents are never beyond his control.
     
       (2.) Hakkah, a fish "hook" (Job 41:2, Heb. Text, 40:25; Isa.
     19:8; Hab. 1:15).
     
       (3.) Vav, a "peg" on which the curtains of the tabernacle were
     hung (Ex. 26:32).
     
       (4.) Tsinnah, a fish-hooks (Amos 4:2).
     
       (5.) Mazleg, flesh-hooks (1 Sam. 2:13, 14), a kind of fork
     with three teeth for turning the sacrifices on the fire, etc.
     
       (6.) Mazmeroth, pruning-hooks (Isa. 2:4; Joel 3:10).
     
       (7.) 'Agmon (Job 41:2, Heb. Text 40:26), incorrectly rendered
     in the Authorized Version. Properly a rush-rope for binding
     animals, as in Revised Version margin.
