A grasp is an act of taking, holding or seizing firmly with (or as if with) the hand. An example of a grasp is the handshake, wherein two people grasp one of each other's like hands.
In zoology particularly, prehensility is the quality of an appendage or organ that has adapted for grasping or holding.
The development of grasping is an important component of child development stages, wherein the main types of grasps are:
The palmar grasp reflex (sometimes simply called grasp reflex) is among the primitive reflexes and appears at birth and persists until five or six months of age. When an object is placed in the infant's hand and strokes their palm, the fingers will close and they will grasp it. The grip is strong but unpredictable; though it may be able to support the child's weight, they may also release their grip suddenly and without warning. The reverse motion can be induced by stroking the back or side of the hand.
GRASP was a systems software package that provided spooling facilities for the IBM/370 running DOS/VS or DOS/VSE environment, and IBM/360 running DOS or retrofitted with modified DOS.
GRASP was a mainframe operating system enhancement available for DOS, DOS/VS, DOS/VSE, and some third party DOS-based operating systems. Subsequent versions became known as GRASP/VS and GRASP/VSE.
It 'spooled' (queued) printer and card data, freeing programs from being dependent upon the speed of printers or punched card equipment.
GRASP was the first such spooler for IBM mainframes, and later had competition from IBM's POWER and DataCorp's The Spooler. GRASP, like Spooler, could reside in an independent 'F0' partition.
The product ran under several DOS-related platforms:
