Initial Program Load !

Today was my Fundamentals of Computer Programming and Information Technology exam! And I am not passing, because of the little time for preparation and lots of syllabus thrust upon our class!
Going through a very simple topic told me something. Boot Process of a computer system is also known as Initial Program Load or IPL. It maybe common, but I never knew, that I may confess! I always thought of this term as something like when a software loads, it shows the splash screen and loads the necessary software files into the computer memory :D
For those students who don't know, you may memorize this nicely, for I was asked about it in viva-voice after the exam, and it really went very well as against how ruthlessly I am going to fail in the written test!
