Uncostable vs Uncastable - What's the difference?
As adjectives the difference between uncostable and uncastable
is that uncostable
is not costable while uncastable
is that cannot be cast (filled with, or allocated, a theatrical role).
* 2012 , David Muir Wood, Civil Engineering: A Very Short Introduction (page 49)
- There may be some uncostable influences on this choice – for example, aesthetic considerations – but it is likely that the choice will ultimately be governed by economic constraints.
That cannot be cast (filled with, or allocated, a theatrical role).
* 1974 , New York Magazine (volume 7, number 3, 21 January 1974)
* 1996 , Scott Donaldson, The Cambridge companion to Hemingway
- Colleen Dewhurst, though in many ways wrong for the virtually uncastable Josie, is as lucid and luminous...
(computing, programming) That cannot be cast (converted to other data types).
* 2000 , Larry Wall, Tom Christiansen, Jon Orwant, Programming Perl
- ...that he would, like many actors, become so stereotyped in the public mind as to be uncastable in other roles...
(medicine) That cannot be set in a cast.
* 2005 , Mercer Rang, Maya E Pring, Dennis Ray Wenger, Rang's children's fractures
- They're strongly typed, uncastable pointers...
That cannot be used for, or produced through, casting (manufacturing with a mould).
* 1943 , The Mining Magazine
- ...internal fixation in children with open, unstable, or otherwise uncastable forearm fractures...
* 1982 , Production engineering
- Casting must be done within a day or two of moulding or the moulds will begin to wind-dry and become uncastable ...
- This allows the casting of otherwise uncastable materials, with acceptable rejection rates, and can increase ductility by as much as a factor of six.
