Really? Definition needs converting to dictionary-style if OK. SemperBlotto (talk) 16:04, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

He must be talking about the A* graph search algorithm... I think...? Equinox 21:18, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
That seems likely as the Wikipedia article is linked from the entry. In which case it is SoP A*+string (sense#6). SpinningSpark 22:01, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
Apparently so. The entry doesn't make much sense to me, and I'm not familiar with any kind of "string" being used in A* search, but it's clear he means string in the comp-sci sense of "piece of text", so perhaps there is some proposal to link to Web resources using a string/textual name that embodies a graph search. None of the links mention this and I think we should just delete it. Equinox 22:08, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
