A CDE Definition
on the fly
Operations performed "on the fly," which are based on decisions made while the program is running rather than beforehand. The expression, "buffers are dynamically created," means that space is created when actually needed, not reserved ahead of time. The expression, "data are compressed onto the disk dynamically" means that the compression algorithms are being applied when the data are being written rather than before. Contrast with static. See runtime and dynamic programming language. See also Microsoft Dynamics.
