Processing may refer to any of the following:
1. With a computer processor, processing is the actions a processor performs when it receives information and is part of the IPOS (input, processing, output, and storage) steps.
3. Processing is a graphics library and IDE based on the Java programming language, first released in 2001 by developers Casey Reas and Ben Fry. Its goal is to simplify computer programming for visual artists, providing new classes and mathematical functions for creating and processing computer graphics. Its IDE, called Sketchbook, uses an abstraction, called a "sketch," to represent its fundamental Java class.
