|Hebrew term or phrase: seh-la|
|Since this term allegedly comes from teh Old Testament of the Bible, perhaps it is Hebrew, or Greek, or .....|
Its meaning is supposed to be "to pause", or "a silent break". It is being used in a modern script of a science fiction program.
Anyone have any ideas ?? Thanks in advance.
Normally, I've seen the OT term spelled "selah" not "seh-la"...
May I suggest that SEH stands for Structural Exception Handler- a mechanism for handling software generated exceptions- support for computer geeks (debuggers)- usable across ALL programming languages and computers, often seen on websites (in those little unintelligible phrases and fragments that appear from time to time)...
