Occasionally when learning through a book, there are certain "code words" where one should perform a string replacement of the "code word" with some different phrase or list of instructions. For the sake of having a name for this sort of thing, this will be called **string replacements of code words**.

If one does not understand the meaning of the code word, this can lead to frustration or confusion.
