1. To change slightly, usually in reference to a value. Also
used synonymously with twiddle. If a program is almost
correct, rather than figure out the precise problem you might
just keep tweaking it until it works. See frobnicate and
fudge factor; also see shotgun debugging.
2. To tune or bum a program; preferred usage in the UK.
