  BLT 
  n  :  sandwich  filled  with  slices  of  bacon  and  tomato  with  lettuce 
  [syn:  {bacon-lettuce-tomato  sandwich},  {BLT}] 
 
  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  BLT  /B-L-T/,  /bl*t/  or  (rarely)  /belt/  n.,vt.  Synonym  for 
  {blit}.  This  is  the  original  form  of  {blit}  and  the  ancestor  of 
  {bitblt}.  It  referred  to  any  large  bit-field  copy  or  move  operation 
  (one  resource-intensive  memory-shuffling  operation  done  on  pre-paged 
  versions  of  ITS  WAITS,  and  TOPS-10  was  sardonically  referred  to  as  `The 
  Big  BLT').  The  jargon  usage  has  outlasted  the  {PDP-10}  BLock  Transfer 
  instruction  from  which  {BLT}  derives;  nowadays,  the  assembler  mnemonic 
  {BLT}  almost  always  means  `Branch  if  Less  Than  zero'.
