Etymology[edit]

From Old French catalogue, from Late Latin catalogus, itself from Ancient Greek κατάλογος (katalogos, an enrollment, a register, a list, catalogue), from καταλέγω (katalego, to recount, to tell at length or in order, to make a list), from κατά (kata, downwards, towards) + λέγω (lego, to gather, to pick up, to choose for oneself, to pick out, to count).

    • 2012 May 5, Phil McNulty, “Chelsea 2-1 Liverpool”, BBC Sport:

  3. A list of all the publications in a library.
  4. (US) A university calendar.
  5. (computing, dated) A directory listing.
    • 1983, Helpline (in Sinclair User issue 21)
      The program generates a catalogue of the files on the cartridge selected by the user, reads the catalogue into memory and erases the cartridge copy, so that an up-to-date copy is always generated.
    • 2003, "Brotha G", Repairing Microdrive Cartridges (on newsgroup comp.sys.sinclair)
      It has two extra options using extended syntax. CAT - an extended catalogue but not as detailed as some I've seen. ( The reason that the Spectrum CAT command is restricted is that it cleverly uses the 512 bytes data buffer of the microdrive channel to sort the filenames - hence the limit of 50 ten-character filenames )
