From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]: Brittle \Brit"tle\, a. [OE. britel, brutel, AS. bryttian to dispense, fr. bre['o]tan to break; akin to Icel. brytja, Sw. bryta, Dan. bryde. Cf. {Brickle}.] Easily broken; apt to break; fragile; not tough or tenacious. [1913 Webster] Farewell, thou pretty, brittle piece Of fine-cut crystal. --Cotton. [1913 Webster] {Brittle silver ore}, the mineral {stephanite}. [1913 Webster] From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]: brittle adj 1: having little elasticity; hence easily cracked or fractured or snapped; "brittle bones"; "glass is brittle"; "`brickle' and `brickly' are dialectal" [syn: {brittle}, {brickle}, {brickly}] 2: lacking warmth and generosity of spirit; "a brittle and calculating woman" 3: (of metal or glass) not annealed and consequently easily cracked or fractured [syn: {brittle}, {unannealed}] n 1: caramelized sugar cooled in thin sheets [syn: {brittle}, {toffee}, {toffy}] From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) [jargon]: brittle adj. Said of software that is functional but easily broken by changes in operating environment or configuration, or by any minor tweak to the software itself. Also, any system that responds inappropriately and disastrously to abnormal but expected external stimuli; e.g., a file system that is usually totally scrambled by a power failure is said to be brittle. This term is often used to describe the results of a research effort that were never intended to be robust, but it can be applied to commercial software, which (due to closed-source development) displays the quality far more often than it ought to. Oppose {robust}.
