munge

/muhnj/ 1. A derogatory term meaning to imperfectly transform information.

2. A comprehensive rewrite of a routine, data structure or the whole program.

This term is often confused with mung and may derive from it, or possibly vice-versa. One correspondent believes it derives from the french "mange" /monzh/, eat.
