  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Retting A place where flax is retted; a rettery.
    • Retting The act or process of preparing flax for use by soaking, maceration, and kindred processes; -- also called rotting. See Ret.

Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n retting The process of steeping flax in open water, or its exposure, in thin layers, to dew, in which the woody part of the stalk is, by action of moisture and air, rendered easily separable from the fiber or harl. The principal change which the stalk undergoes is the conversion of insoluble pectose into soluble pectin, which is measurably removed by the water, and insoluble pectic acid, which is retained. Also called rotting.
    • n retting The place where this operation is carried on; a rettery.

Had gilded o'er its weeping,
And that sweet flow'ret calmly there
Beneath its ray was sleeping.

In science:

If RET opcode is found in the first byte after the original instruction opcode, a jump land should be emitted just before this instruction.
Security Mitigations for Return-Oriented Programming Attacks
If RET opcode is found in ModR/M byte, which indicates using EAX register as destination operand and EBX register as source operand (e.g., MOV EAX,EBX), such instructions can be transformed into equivalent form which doesn’t include return instruction opcodes.
Security Mitigations for Return-Oriented Programming Attacks
One of the potential solutions can be based on faking the return address in the API land stub and then recalculating the correct address when RET instructions cause the GP fault.

I, the composition C induces a nested word w = hw, call, ret, mi in which w is the input-output induced word, call holds in positions in which a component made a call, ret holds in positions in which a component returned, and mmaps each call to its return.

It is not difficult to see that this algorithm ret urns the same MIS as the sequential algorithm. A simple proof proceeds by induction on vertices in order. (A vertex v may only be resolved when all of its earlier neighbors have been classified.
