- resource tagsearch for term
An operating system tag that keeps track of NetWare server resources such as screens and allocated memory. NetWare Loadable Module (NLM) programs request a resource from the NetWare server for each kind of resource they use and then give it a resource tag name.NLM programs return resources when they no longer need them. When the NLM is unloaded, the resources are returned to the NetWare server. Resource tags ensure that allocated resources are properly returned to the operating system upon termination of an NLM.
