 Feature film - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A feature film is a term the film industry uses to refer to a film made for initial distribution in theaters.
Usually a feature film is between 90 and 210 minutes; a children's film is usually between 60 and 120 minutes.
Earlier features had been produced in America, but were released in separate one-reel parts, leaving the exhibitor the option of running them together; or they were full-length records of a boxing match.

 Feature System Declaration
In order for application software to use feature system declarations to aid in the automatic interpretation of encoded texts, or even for human readers to find the appropriate declarations which document the feature system used in markup, there must be a formal link from the encoded texts to the declarations.
Feature declarations and feature structure constraints are described in the next two sections of this chapter.
Not just any feature structure is allowable here; it must be a feature structure for agreement (which is defined in the complete example at the end of the chapter to contain the features of person and number).

 Feature Writing, Marshall Soules, 2004   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In a version of featurizing, pressure from advertisers or lobbyists often result in writing that appears at first blush to be news when it is, in fact, promotion for a product, idea, or policy.
Because a feature generally runs longer than a news story, it is effective to weave a thread throughout the story, which connects the lead to the body and to the conclusion.
Transition is particularly important in a long feature examining several people or events because it is the tool writers use to move subtly from one person or topic to the next.

 Feature Structures
A feature structure is a general purpose data structure which identifies and groups together individual features, each of which associates a name with one or more values.
Features with values organized as sets, bags or lists can sometimes be used instead of features organized as singletons, whose values are individual feature structures.
This method of associating feature structures with textual elements has a number of drawbacks, most important of which is the fact that the association is implicit, relying on the relative position of pointer and associated text, rather than being explicit.

 Introduction to Features
The features in Figure 1 are basically a formalized version, wording wise at least, of traditional features.
Although one of the primary advantages of features is that their small size makes them easy to estimate and to implement their size also poses a problem in that one feature by itself rarely provides significant value to stakeholders.
From a requirements point of view features are to FDD as use cases are to the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and user stories are to XP — they’re a primary source of requirements and the primary input into your planning efforts.

 The DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank Feature Table: Definition
Features, such as open reading frames or sequences showing sequence similarity to consensus sequences, for which there is no direct experimental evidence can be annotated.
For example, the feature label can be used to refer unambiguously to a coding region that exists in a different entry to the exons of which it is comprised.
The full feature name syntax is as follows: Database name::primary accession number:feature label References to a feature should use as much of the full feature name as required to unambiguously identify the feature.

 Products, Tools & Resources > What Are Feature Points?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The SPR Feature Point metric is a superset of the IBM Function Point metric and introduces a parameter, algorithms, in addition to the five standard Function Point parameters.
For a PBX telephone switch the Function Point total was 1,845, but the Feature Point total was 2,300 due to the high algorithmic complexity of the application.
Since Feature Points are driven by algorithmic complexity, a definition of "algorithm" is appropriate.

 Font Feature Registry
The Letter Case feature type is used to specify changes to the case of letters (in scripts where case has meaning), in either a contextual or a non-contextual manner.
It is important to note that this feature is different than the notion of linguistic reordering, which happens when text from predominantly left-to-right scripts (such as Latin) is mixed with text from predominantly right-to-left scripts (such as Hebrew).
The CJK Roman Spacing feature type is used to select between the proportional and half-width forms of Roman characters in a CJK font.

 jargon, node: feature
For example, one feature of Common LISP's `format' function is the ability to print numbers in two different Roman-numeral formats (see bells, whistles, and gongs).
To call something a feature sometimes means the author of the program did not consider the particular case, and that the program responded in a way that was unexpected but not strictly incorrect.
A standard joke is that a bug can be turned into a feature simply by documenting it (then theoretically no one can complain about it because it's in the manual), or even by simply declaring it to be good.

 FAQ Sheet on Feature Interaction
Feature interactions are especially common in telecommunications, because all features are modifying or enhancing the same basic service, which is real-time communication among people.
The dark side of features is feature interaction, which is implicit in feature composition and therefore difficult to understand.
To manage interactions among features, it is necessary to detect potential interactions, to distinguish between the good and bad ones, to prevent the bad ones, and to enable the good ones.

The usefulness of the FEATURE system is limited by the size of the model library which it uses to identify potential functional sites.
To automatically generate a large number of models, we hypothesized that the FEATURE vector could be calculated at each grid point in every protein from the PDB and then clustered.
Similar FEATURE vectors would cluster together indicating the grid points they were calculated at were similar as well.

 Introduction to Feature Controls (Windows IETechCol)
When a feature control is enabled for a process, the more restrictive behaviors governed by the feature are enforced.
Some feature controls can be turned on or off for a specific security zone, and some feature controls apply to any page regardless of zone.
Feature Controls work on a process-by-process basis, so developers hosting the WebBrowser Control can enable or disable security features for the current process without affecting other processes (including Internet Explorer itself).

In my recent essay about the Feature Writing category of the Pulitzer Prizes, I argued that weighty narrative series may have elbowed the traditional stand-alone feature out of contention.
Feature stories offer news of the emotions is the way Jon Franklin, twice a Pulitzer winner, has described it to me.
As a result, the habitat for the traditional stand-alone feature has shrunk, and, with it, the habit of reading good stories that used to draw many of us to the newspaper in the first place.

If the feature install level is 0 (zero), or greater than or equal to the current install level, no change is made in the feature state.
To guarantee that the child feature's state always follows the state of its parent, even when the child and parent are initially set to absent in the SelectionTree Control, you must include both msidbFeatureAttributesFollowParent and msidbFeatureAttributesUIDisallowAbsent in the attributes of the child feature.
Setting this attribute forces the feature to the installation state, whether or not the feature is visible in the UI.

 What is feature creep? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: requirements creep, creeping featuritis, feeping ...
Feature creep may be driven by a client's growing "wish list" or by developers themselves as they see opportunity for improving the product.
To control feature creep, project management tools, such as the requirements stability index (RSI), are sometimes advocated.
Feature creep and the deliberate spoonerism creature feep should not be confused with the "creature feature," the kind of horror movie that might be popular at Halloween.

 Geometric Software Solutions | Technologies | Feature Recognition
Feature recognition is the ability to automatically or interactively identify and group topological entities, such as faces in a boundary representation (B-rep) solid model, into functionally significant features such as holes, slots, pockets, fillets, ribs, etc. The features that are not recognized automatically can be recognized using the interactive feature recognition facilities.
Feature Recognition is needed for intelligent re-use of CAD data by downstream applications.
For example, a design feature and a manufacturing feature may not be designed in the same manner.
