<programming> A kind of program, such as a graphical user interface, with a main loop which just waits for events to
occur. Each event has an associated handler which is passed
the details of the event, e.g. mouse button 3 pressed at
position (355, 990).
For example, X window system and most Visual Basic
application programs are event-driven.
See also callback.
